3rd Grade Styrofoam Plate Prints

 Prints by Jackie W.

After discussing the differences between printmaking and painting or drawing, third graders are using 4x6 inch styrofoam sheets to create these beautiful sheets of prints in a simple pattern of two colors.  The styrofoam sheets allow the students to create their designs simply by pressing them into the styrofoam with a dulled pencil.  Some students made two printing plates using a pair of matched or opposite designs, like the "Rain" and "Sun" design below.
