Botanical and Wildlife Linocuts (First Proofs) by 6th Graders at Morris

This week the rest of my 6th grade SNAP (Science Nature and Art in Philadelphia) students  pulled black and white proofs from their carved linocuts - this is a sampling from Morris Elementary. (I have also posted images from kids at Kearny and Meade.)

I especially love the gasps I get from kids who have never done relief printmaking before when I pull up the first print from the demo block. After that the kids happily go to work trying to get a good image. When they fail to get one they like, I tell them, "That's the joy of printmaking, you can always print a new one." Then they go back to the inking station to try again.
