Printmaking for All!

All classes have been doing some fun and exciting printmaking projects. 

The first, second, third and fourth graders have been looking at the artwork of Georgia O'Keefe. The students observed that she paints a lot of flowers and that her artwork is MAGNIFIED. In her style, the children drew a close up of a flower and then an EVEN closer magnified version. 

In her style, students created stamps that are magnified view of flowers using foam board as the base of the stamp and markers to ink.

Using the same technique and materials, Kindergarten students have created a four-seasoned inspired stamp. Each child created a stamp of a basic tree and then by inking the stamp in differing ways, they have turned it into each of the four seasons.
