5th Grade Printmaking

Students in 5th grade studied different types of printmaking in art and learned that printmaking is a form of art when an artist can create the same image over and over again.  The artist creates a stamp or printing plate and then uses a medium like paint or ink to print multiple times.  Students started by planning and carving a design into a rubber stamp using a linoleum cutting tool.  They then selected a set of colors to color on their stamp and print over and over in a grid pattern.  Students followed the grid pattern over and over rotating their stamp to create radial balance in their printmaking art.

The original project idea came from, which has a grid template for the stamping to follow.
