Course Description

Bring Art into the Classroom to Enhance Your Curriculum

Infusing Art in the 21st Century Classroom - Printmaking without a Press:  Block Printing is a project-based, in-depth investigation of block printing.  Beginning with using found-objects as stamps, and culminating with an edition of multi-colored reductive prints, students will investigate the process of block printing in the beauty of its simplicity and the grandeur of its complexity.  Through the experience, students will explore the Common Core and ways that these standards can be integrated into printmaking lessons. A comprehensive printmaking lesson with integrated Common Core activities that is ready to use in your K-12 classroom will be created in this course.
