Printmaking is one of my favorite things to do with elementary kids. In part, because it feels like magic. And, in part, because it tends to be one of those things that even the least successful still look pretty good. Kids who struggle in other areas often find success in printmaking.
I tried a few new lessons this year. Taken from an arts and activities (I think?) Potato and apple printing, radial symmetry. Both Kindergarten and 2nd grade did this lesson.
