Linoleum Relief Prints

Linoleum Relief Prints

My 6th grade students are learning about PRINTMAKING.  We are creating prints using linoleum.  This is always a popular project with my students.

During our first class, I talk about printmaking and show various examples.  The students see the entire process: drawing, transferring the image to the linoleum, carving and pulling prints.

The students spend the rest of the first class working on their drawings.  During the next class they transfer their image and begin carving the linoleum.  They then have two classes to pull prints. 

Here are some of the finished pieces:

More to come....
