Printing a winter scene
I found this project on Kid Artist along with several other wonderful winter projects. I was winding down with printing projects late last month and had one class that was ahead of all the others. I needed one more lesson to keep this group on track and not too far ahead of everyone else. My November focus was printmaking and this definitely filled the bill. The tree is printed using cardboard and the owls were fingerprints. Week one, students colored in the full moon, printed the tree overlapping and added the fingerprints that would become the owls. Week two, they added details to the owls using drawing pens and stamped snowflakes using commercial stampers from the dollar store. Really cute, don't you think???
