[Tiffany, Talk to your principal. Mine says its not worth the
risk.(I'm K-6)]}
All it takes is one goofy kid, a jerk, a meathead, or a careless moment - to
make you regret it. Most printmaking I do is - stencils -with or without
bridges- Even K can make them-have them draw the fish/bird/animal/-anything- &
cut it out -then tape the entry cut. They can be printed & arranged on their
page -Printed in different ways-fish
can be colored & decorated differently each time they're printed. Kids can
share their stencils / you can give them a bulletin bd sheet on their tables
to cooperatively print upon.
Impressive to everyone! I use crayons to color them with. You can hang out in
the hall and/or cut out the best ones & arrange into a temporary or even
ambitious Mural.
Another thing is collagraphs with tagboard glued down & crayon rubbed or *if
you want you can ink it & print it *or you can use styrofoam butcher blocks to
be inked *or you can print w/ modeling clay-scratch out designs or press
hotwheel cars & toys into it & print w/
ink.There are too many safe ways to risk the possible consequences.
