These are collograph faces made by my 1st graders at the Community Partnership School. The kids have been looking at African Masks and talking about the differences between organic and geometric shapes as well as texture and patterns. For this project I gave them foam pieces, lace, yarn, cardboard, and bubble wrap and instructed them to make a collage of a face. They then printed their faces in black block printing ink on different colored sheets of paper. I love how abstract these turned out. The kids had a lot of fun making them too.
