I combine the soft cut printing and a quilt unit. The students create a =
plate and we print it like we would in a regular printing unit and then =
the students are grouped by tables. They have to come up with a color =
scheme for the whole group (no duplicates per class) Because there are =
more students than colors we use tints and shades. Each student then =
paints their color onto paper using brayers(fun!). When that is dry, the =
student prints onto the paper like they are designing fabric. Each =
student in the group cuts their printed "fabric" with their section of =
the quilt pattern. When we are done, I have 5 quilt blocks per class =
that have used color theory. I had given up lino cuts because of too =
many injuries, with the soft cut I now use this unit in 8th grade.
