I jumped on board to follow the latest readings with the Artsy Book Club. I have spent the last couple of days pulling together some materials for a few of the projects from "Printmaking Unleashed" For starter, the projects are a lot of fun...for me. I think I would be reluctant to try many of the procedures with my elementary students. I started by creating some stencils using a hot glue gun. I grabbed an old Teflon pan from the kitchen and my glue gun and started drawing. It was a blast however, the stencils wouldn't lift off of the old pan. I went in search of a Teflon sheet and was not successful so purchased another Teflon baking pan and created some new stencils. This time it worked like a breeze and the stencils were a snap to create. Very successful procedure but I would not place hot glue guns, even the low temp ones in the hands of a classroom full of students. I might consider it in a well supervised environment and small group for an after school program or club. Most of the experimentation I have done, I feel the same way about. Not for a classroom full of elementary students but manageable for a smaller group when well supervised. I am not finished yet and will experiment more. I also intend to take all the methods and combine them in some way for a completed project.
