The 1st graders studied the Arctic in their Language Arts/Social Studies class. In Art class, they chose an animal from the Arctic to depict in a print. They made impressions on styrofoam printing plates using regular pencils. Then, they inked the plates using a brayer and printing ink. These lovely prints are the result!
Tips: Set up printing stations and watch a small group print at a time. The other kids can work on a drawing while some are printing. Use ink retarder to slow drying time.
