Printmaking at Party in the Art Room

We had so much fun printmaking at Party in the Art Room in January. 

Students learned about woodblock printing, Ukiyo-e, and a famous artist named Hokusai. They viewed his works from the series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji. Here's one of his most famous prints, The Great Wave. (Everybody in Tupelo should know this one! Hey Go Wave!)


Then students learned about collographs for printmaking. We talked about the differences in woodblock printing and collographs.






Each student designed their own collograph, created it, and used it to create a print. They each started with an idea and were coached through the creative process to create these works. Just look how different they all are! That's how you know the students were the ones really doing the creative work! The teachers coached the student through the process, but the students ultimately expressed their own ideas through this medium by creating these works!

Here's a video rundown from the collographs and prints from the homeschooler class!
