Bunki and all -
Great idea! I'm just working on printmaking ideas for eighth
graders.....thanks.....which made me think of something else I'd get with an
increased budget......a copy machine and loads of toner! Actually, I bought an
old one at a garage sale last year for $50. I cannot tell you how much I've
used it!!!! I had kids make collages using the xerox machine and then drawing,
painting, etc. into the collage, several generations ---very impressive
results!! I've also used copies of representational self portraits as a basis
for an expresseive self portrait.....After I bought the machine, I found out
how much toner costs!!!!! At the end of the year, I put every penny left into
toner. This year, I plan to have kids research an artist and make a one page
book on the copier -- a simple book that can be made in editions and then
exchanged with fellow classmates.
