Help me give my students an amazing school year filled with creative projects! The majority of my students come from a harder area of the city and a low income part of town. I would like to allow them the opportunity to try new things and express themselves in a new way. Many people know that art is a great way for children to express emotions, improve self-esteem and relieve stress.
Every one of my students are hard workers and I think they would appreciate doing something fun and trying something new!
Gelli printing takes mixed media art creations to another level. The printing plates are durable, reusable, easy to store and clean. My students will be able to use these for years to come!
These printing plates will allow my students to try a new medium in their visual art class. My students are so creative and look forward to coming to art every day, because in my class they get a chance to relax and express themselves differently than in their core subjects.
I'm always looking for ways to enhance their art experiences and give them new things to try!
I am planning a unit on texture and color and these will definitely help out!! Instead of just the regular lesson on texture, I want to give my students a chance to use something new. We can print basically any pattern or texture using acrylic paint and stamps or texture plates and the Gelli printing plates.
