Students were to design a house and yard using line, pattern and texture.
9x12 white paper
Scratch-Foam Printing Plates
1. I gave the students some images of different houses and architecture for the students to draw from and use as inspiration. Student started with pencil drawings of their design.
2. They taped their drawings to a piece of Scratch-Foam and traced over the pencil with black pen and pressed hard as they worked. Using black pen gives me a finished second, pen and ink project.
3. Students lifted the drawing off of the foam and retraced the lines directly on the foam with pen.
4. Inking! Below are some images of how I set up my materials to get ready to print. I have the ink tray and brayer on the right and a piece of paper on the left. Because I did not have enough printing materials for each students. One table was for printing the other was for students to finish their work or free draw and wait for their turn. I show each student how to roll the ink on evenly and not put too much ink on their foam.
