My students surprise me every day with their creativity and drive, and teaching at an Arts/Science Magnet Middle schools allows me the opportunity to work with students who are highly motivated in the art classroom. I teach a wide range of students with a variety of needs and interests, and all of my students will benefit from experiences with a broader range of art materials.
Funding projects for my students will allow them the opportunity to thrive in mediums they have not currently explored.
Because they are so curious, I believe this will enhance their learning in all content areas.
This monotype project will serve as an introduction to printmaking and a review of color theory for my students. Monotype printing is the process by which only one print is pulled from the printing plate. This is a great introduction to printmaking because it helps students understand the basic qualities of making prints through a fast paced mark making process.
In this project, students will learn basic printmaking techniques by using printing plates, brayers, barens, and printing inks to create one of a kind monotype prints.
Students will also review color theory by observing what happens when they create multi-layer prints using primary colors.
I believe this experience will provide my students with a deeper understanding of what printmaking is and why artists choose to create in this style.
