Here is a quick explanation of how Jose created his print.
What I learned from the project:
1) Fun projects can be a great way for students to decompress.
2) When the goal of the project is to explore instead of grade, the students enjoy it more.
3) Some students don't want to do 'that' fun project but it doesn't mean they won't want to do a different fun project later.
4) Students don't always see what they create as 'real' art. I am amazed by what they create, I wish they were too.
I love it! Please tell Jose that I learned a new technique thanks to his video today. In all the years that I've taught art & I've looked for a variety of cheaper materials to use with printmaking, I never thought of using styrofoam cups. Too cool.ReplyDelete
