5th Grade Printmaking

  • The 5th grade students looked at images of Mexican Guitar Painting for inspiration for their printmaking project. After looking at images, each student was asked to pick an instrument. This instrument became the central piece for their print. After choosing their instrument, they were then instructed to visualize the noise, sounds, and rhythms that instrument might make. After visualizing this, students created sound lines to surround their insturment. Students then put all the piceces together to create their printing plates and finally prints.
