Third Grade is working on a project using a printing technique. Winter is a great subject to use for print, when the ink doesn't cover every part of the paper it gives a snowfall look. Students started with a small piece of paper, and sketched an interesting winter snow scene. After they decided where to put everything, they were given a piece of styrofoam and carved into the foam using a pencil. The foam is used as a printing block for the ink.
Students had to make at least 4 prints, each a different color paper with the same color ink.
Using the brayer, students covered their styrofoam stamp with ink and placed that printing stamp onto the paper. They each signed, titled and numbered 1-4 in their series (Total number of prints)
