Pop Art Portraits

Fifth grade students used linoleum block prints to create these self portraits. Students printed their self portraits in four different colors with different background colors to really make them "pop." I was really proud of my students. Linoleum blocks are a lot of work, especially when only going to art every few days.


  1. Your students did a great job! I thought I was the only one who still used linoleum for printmaking! You're right- it's tough to use, especially if you have a cold room. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Do you heat your linoleum with an iron? It really helps. I had never used linoleum in elementary before, because it is so pricey.

  3. I have always been a fan of quality pictures, what a creativity and style. Keep doing such good work.
