Art is Education! Sea Animal Printmaking for our Ocean Unit!

My students need block printing materials to help us add an element of rich arts integration to all of our units!

My Students

Have you ever made a block print before? Can you imagine a child's reaction to making a picture that can help them to learn about everything from line to positive and negative space! Our next unit is on the ocean and we can't wait to turn our scientific drawings into artistic prints!

Our students come from a diverse community in California.

Our classroom is a self-contained kindergarten and first grade combination class. During these important first years of school, differentiation is key to the success of each child. Our students begin their educational adventure with varying levels of ability and prior knowledge. It is our goal to meet each child where they are and help them to grow and move forward in their learning. It is my dream to provide my students with an exciting and engaging arts integrated education that will help them to enrich their understanding of all content areas!

My Project

We are requesting a small collection of classroom printmaking materials including: speedball wooden easy cutters, ink, brayers, printing blocks and paper. We are so excited to make good use of these materials to extend our possibilities in our Sea Animals Project! Students will be able to transform their scientific sea animal pictures into breathtaking artistic representations through printmaking!

Arts integrations is so important in our classroom.

I am currently enrolled in Alameda Counties Arts Learning Specialist Program and I am consistently trying to challenge myself to find new ways to integrate the arts. For this unit my students will be exploring the concepts of critique and descriptive feedback as they embark on the journey of creating scientific drawings of sea creatures they are studying. As part of this process we will be extending these depictions to printmaking!
