> There are two pages of images. Designs are geometric. Corrugated
> cardboard is cut with directions of ridges changed to make the plate
> and print more interesting. The examples are fourth and fifth grade.
> Plates and prints are 8" square. Some examples are printed over
> colored tissue paper (I am assuming) and other examples are hand
> colored with markers. Click through to see examples of plates shown
> with the prints. Motivation would be Op Art. Older students could make
> larger plates and more complex designs.
> If anyone does this lesson, send me a couple images and plan for
> Incredible Art Department. I will credit Pittsfield School, Ann Arbor
> as source of the idea (although I have seen this done before).
> I found this site while looking for new elementary art sites to add to
> Art Departments. I found a few good ones.....went through ten pages of
> Google - that was enough for me (grin).
