Arctic Animals

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.

The other children can perform on a illustrating while some are publishing. Use ink retarder to slowly blow drying time.
