My Students

My school is located in an economically low income urban area of a major city in New York State. The students in my school come from diverse backgrounds and many of them are new to the United States and speak languages other than English.

My students are exceptionally talented artists, despite the many challenges they face.

They enter the art room each time eager to see what is in store for them to create, imagine and dream up!

The language of art is truly universal, for many of my students who struggle with adapting to life in a new country and learning a new language the art room is a safe place where everyone is welcome. Art is the language of the heart and the expression of the soul where words are not a necessity for successful communication.

My Project

Monoprinting is a form of printmaking in which only a single image can be printed resulting in a unique one of a kind artwork, unlike other printing methods which can produce multiple copies of an image.

Students will explore Botanical Monoprints by using natural plant material in combination with traditional printmaking materials and supplies.

My fourth grade students will actively explore the creative method of monotype printing while learning the basics of printmaking, using brayers and inking plates to pull a print. Students will explore the differences between positive and negative prints as well as creating layered and textured prints in their series.
