BIG Printmaking!

Just before and immediately following the winter break, the art students worked on a BIG Printmaking project. This project involved using foam to create raised images on paper and then affixing this foam-paper piece to rolling or stamping materials by Zot Artz to create layered prints! We painted on top of the tables as well as on the walls!

What we ended up with were huge, beautiful paintings that we are now working to cut into prints that can be framed, displayed and sold at our upcoming Spaghetti Dinner on February 7th!

Update: Some of our creations are being used for special packaging for the crayons made by the enterprise in Mrs. Huffman’s homeroom…so be on the lookout when you make purchases from her class!

See the pictures here to get a glimpse of our painting and creating process…

The in-progress wall piece...an unexpected thing happened: the pattern of the bricks in the wall came through the paint and created an all new effect!
