Sixth graders made these wonderful prints after carving a 6×6″ piece of linoleum. Students worked from a photograph to help capture details of their face. They carefully carved around the shadows and lines of their facial features, leaving the shadows alone so they’d print black.
They did a fabulous job on this challenging project!
Sixth grade students used linoleum cutting techniques to create a self-portrait print. Aren’t they fabulous?! They worked really hard on drawing themselves realistically and emphasized where shadows and highlights hit the face. Here is a student carefully carving their linoleum:
Here is a student using a brayer for the printing process:
I think the sixth grade deserves a big pat on the back for tackling this medium. It was a challenge but each student tried their best and completed successful projects. Great job!
Sixth graders in Mr. Scesney’s class worked from an expressive photograph to create these fabulous linoleum block prints. Students carved the negative space with linoleum cutters – making sure to carve safely. They printed their linoleum blocks with acrylic ink on paper personally selected by the artist. I think each print was a success and showcased the artistic talent at Vienna Elementary.
