Term 3 Week 4

Amber & Turquoise Class

Our reception, year 1 and year 2 artists took prints from the printing plates we made last week using craft foam. We started off using single colours, before moving on to using multiple colours on the same print. We learned how to produce a clear print by judging the amount of ink we needed to use, and applying an appropriate amount of pressure to the plate before lifting it off the paper. We made eight prints each- it was a busy session! We chose our most successful print to share with the group and described why we had chosen it.


Magenta & Violet Class

Our year 3 and 4 classes made prints from their printing plates too. We used single colours to start with, then experimented with combining two or three colours in different ways. We got some really successful prints!


Emerald Class

Our year 5 and 6 artists used a variety of colours of ink to produce multiple prints from their typographic designs. The prints came out brilliantly, and the printing plates themselves looked really creative! We also printed two versions of the animal drawings we produced on polystyrene sheets last week. Next week we’ll be printing a second layer onto these in a contrasting colour.
