Amazing Art Work

We were very fortunate to have an expert who could come in and talk with us when we were doing our Art printmaking unit. Abbie, Marcel's Mum, is a graphic designer and she uses screen printing techniques when she creates her amazing designs. Abbie offered to bring in one of her designs so the children could experience using a screen printer to create the design on both paper and fabric.
First, she came in to explain to the children how the design process works and the steps she needs to take before she can even begin to print. On the following two days she brought in her design and equipment and let the children have a turn creating their own print.
We were very grateful to Abbie for offering to give the children this experience, as it was an ideal opportunity to 'have a go' at learning a skill in a 'real life' situation.

Have a look at the photos we took of Abbie and the children doing their screen printing.

  1. Wow, these screenprints look amazing in the photos and when I visited your classroom last week I noticed them on display across your classroom. I can see that you were also using your H.E.A.R.T values as you worked on these. :-)
