The magic words for this lesson were printing and blending.
I just wanted the kids to experiment with printing so I told them that they could create any image they wanted and that they just had to fill their whole page with interesting shapes and lines. Some students created patterns, buildings, boats, houses, rockets and monsters, while others just enjoyed printing random lines on their page.
Scrap pieces of cardboard and balsa wood
Students had a lot of fun printing. Soft pastels were a big hit but despite my best effort some students still left with very messy faces and clothes (sorry parents!).
