Another medium we explored as a class this summer is printing. Printing can be done in numerous ways and after we did these printing projects we realized that we incorporate printing into many art works that we do.
For this exploration two provocations were set up.
Our first printing investigation was to find a way to make a copy of our original painting. We set out black paint,various sized brushes,and a blank wooden board.
The children painted an image on the board and then we asked how they could make a copy. What would happen if we put a blank piece of paper on top of their wet painting? The class loved peeling their paintings off the board and seeing the their first prints.
Our second printing explored the ability to print the same image multiple times. Using styrofoam and pencils the class carved out images that they would like to print. They painted their images and printed them over and over!
