Print Around the Room

Happy New Year! We eased back into art class with a week of “Print Around the Room”. Sadly our fun with marble printing, bubble printing, object printing and foam printing was interrupted when the art room heater broke mid-week. My new teacher intern, Rachael Howell, and I traveled to classrooms with simple printing materials. Students loved playing with paint and water and carrageenan (seaweed slime) to create unexpected results.

Lower grades painted on objects and printed them on color paper.

After looking over their dry prints, students wrote What If? questions for future strategies with printing.
