In Ms. Sanderson's Art Explorers class, students work on a print-making project. First, they made sketches from pictures. Then, they picked their favorite sketch and copied it on to a piece of flat foam. After that, they carefully went over their lines with a sharp stick to make indentations over the pencil. When they finally rolled printing ink over the foam, the indented lines did not collect ink. This leaves the finished piece with a really cool effect! Pictures of the finished products will be up soon. Make sure to check back :)
