Printmaking in a math room isn’t my ideal set up. There is no sink, it’s messy, and kids are forced to be in the hallway. But when you have students like Rosa, Kadeem, Robyn, and Chantel who are willing to clean and stay after, art is a breeze.
Once lino blocks are completely carved, we begin the printing process. Using a J-Hook, brayer and block printing ink, students can begin.
Using a brayer, students even spread ink even on their carved lino block.
Students place paper is placed on top of their inked lino block. Using a new brayer, students roll over the paper and press hard for 1 minute.
The results look like this. They came out so nice!
