  • Monotype Printmaking with Kids | Carle Museum
    colors on one piece of paper I asked them to make at least three complete prints during the 45 minutes we had for this project We easily could have continued for an hour or more since the different steps kept the kids really engaged Everyone had a handful of colorful prints to take home at the end of the day Here is the list of materials I used for this project Tabletop Printing Press The Studio has this one Hand printing works fine if you don t have access to a press 3mm plexiglass cut down to about 7 x 5 5 with rounded corners we have a set of about 30 little plates but you could get away with 15 or 20 Akua Kolor Slow Drying Watercolor in Crimson Red Phthalo Blue and Hansa Yellow you can use tempera paints instead if that s what you have Speedball Screen Printing Transparent Base 32 oz or gallon use Nasco s Tempera Extender instead if you re using tempera paints 4 foam brayers at least 6 I prefer using the foam rollers over the rubber rollers for this activity small trays for rolling out the ink at each station I suggest 2 rolling trays per station 3 plastic deli containers with lids 3 plastic spoons a stack of drawing paper cut down to a little larger than the plate To mix the colors for printing put a few scoops of the transparent base big scoops if you re mixing for a large class in a deli container and stir in several drops of the Akua Kolor until you get the level of transparency you like Repeat the process for the other two colors You want plenty of transparent base so the colors will blend when overlapped but you don t want to add so much that your colors aren t vibrant if you print them alone Test out what you ve mixed by brushing it onto a piece of paper The colors can be mixed ahead of time and stored in the deli container for several days in a cool dark place For rolling spread a spoonful of the ink mix across the top of the tray and use the roller to spread the ink evenly in the tray I suggest keeping adults in charge of adding more ink to the trays kids tend to add more than they need and the roller can get too gloppy Click here to see our other printmaking ideas One of my favorites besides monotypes is making pasta machine prints Have a great week by Diana MacKenzie Tags akua kolor animals art and imagination color wheel imaginary garden leo lionni monotype printmaking with kids primary colors secondary colors speedball This entry was posted on Monday September 24th 2012 at 3 58 pm and is filed under By Diana MacKenzie Classes Elementary School Nature Printmaking You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback

  • How to Make Paper | Carle Museum
    other blend the pulp while they waited for their turn You want plenty of water mixed with the pulp we used about 3 cups to help distribute the pulp evenly over the paper mold and keep it from clumping Because the pulp was purchased pre shredded it only needed to be blended for about 10 seconds on low Basically you want to mix it to the consistency of a thick smoothie I assisted with pouring the pulp mix over the mold deckle to make sure the pulp spread evenly across the mold The oldest children poured the pulp themselves After removing the deckle the wooden frame that helps give the sheet its form we put a piece of screen on top of the pulp it comes with the class kit and used a large sponge to absorb as much water as possible ringing out the sponge between presses It s hard to see in these photos but the blue mold is sitting on top of a white plastic grid that came in the classroom kit which helped give the mold its structure and made the water drain more quickly With most of the water drawn out by the sponge the pulp sheet was transferred from the mold onto a couch sheet very absorbent paper or material designed to draw any remaining water from the paper without sticking to the wet pulp We helped them press out any additional water The next morning the kids proudly showed showed off the paper we left drying on trays overnight All of the paper sheets were completely dry and ready to bring home by that afternoon So total drying time indoors was 2 days if you dry it in the sun they will dry even faster For this activity we worked with a group of twelve children ages 6 10 and I had an assistant helping me supervise the stations It would have been very tricky to supervise everything myself If I did papermaking with a larger group of children classroom size I would pre blend the pulp in large buckets that we could scoop from and pour over the molds instead of using the blender The children could still make their paper unique and colorful by adding petals leaves or seeds between poured the layers of pulp I m by no means a papermaking expert but having some previous experience from college made me more confident with trying papermaking with a multi ages class I would recommend testing out all of the steps yourself a few times and watched some videos online to see the different variations Variations If you don t want to buy paper pulp you could shred newspaper or printer papers instead Someone told me shredded comics make fun colorful paper You could make your own set of hand molds with cheap picture frames from the craft store and a few supplies from the hardware store Paper Slurry has a great tutorial here Our blenders are specifically for making paper

  • Colorful Pens Inspire Children's Stories | Carle Museum
    on drawing and writing their ideas The pens however caused much excitement with the students Many were thrilled to be allowed to use pens and others were drawn to the beauty of the tool itself They were a hit with their teachers too who observed that the special pens helped the students feel that their work was important and their ideas worthy of a special material Many told me they d be getting some for their classroom writing center A couple of great books I was reading last winter inspired my materials selection Playful Learning by Mariah Brueh l and The Write Start by Jennifer Hallissy Both books discuss how providing simple tools paired with time and a space for their use sends a clear message to young learners that their ideas are worthy of exploration Both books also provide lots of activity ideas resources and beautifully designed activity guides We ordered our pens from one of the school art suppliers we typically order from but I know colored pens can be found in all kinds of office supply stationary craft and other kinds of stores In the Studio we need retractable pens because caps just get lost or glued into projects I love the quality of gel ink pens but those average more than 1 per pen or 11 18 per set and I always need at least 8 sets of everything for guided program activities I found a line of pens called Wow Colors by Pentel for about 4 25 pack of 8 which have worked out to be a good value A small handful of them broke by the end of the school year due to students being uncertain as to how to unclick the pens but they were used by hundreds of kids so not bad Need a go to birthday gift for your children s friends A set of colored gel pens and a little notebook totaling no more than 10 15 would be special for any child 5 and up Younger than that and I would recommend gifting a different type of drawing tool and that is a discussion for another time Do you have a favorite kind of pen or other writing instrument for you child s home art box or your classroom s creative center Please share by Meghan Burch Tags creativity gel pens guided program guided tours imagination jennifer hallissy mariah bruehl pens playful learning retractable pens stories the write start This entry was posted on Friday September 7th 2012 at 3 07 pm and is filed under By Meghan Burch Bookmaking Drawing Elementary School Our Favorite Materials You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions Contributors Meghan Burch Diana MacKenzie Categories

  • Veggie Printing | Carle Museum
    again I would like to experiment with using natural material as paint to make the experience closer to nature I would also like to try bringing fruit into this project We bought our veggies from a local farm market and then cleaned and composted them when we were done Not everyone likes the idea of using food to create art so feel free to switch out the veggies with natural objects such as shells feathers and sea sponges or manmade found objects such as juice caps or product packaging Also check out our other Printmaking posts for other printing and stamping ideas by Meghan Burch Tags color food as art organic materials paint playing with materials printmaking with children special sunday tempera paint vegetable printing veggie printing Art Studio Internship Program Intern Project This entry was posted on Thursday August 23rd 2012 at 2 52 pm and is filed under By Meghan Burch Internship Program Elementary School Every Day Art Program Found Materials Nature Painting Preschool Printmaking You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions meghanb says February 12 2016 at 2 00pm Hi Sharon Thanks for you comment Sensitive to food allergies and cultural beliefs we use food for art making rarely Its our hope that by selecting a particular material to use whether found materials paint markers or veggies etc we re drawing awareness and appreciation for it If we were a studio that said we use only trash found materials for art making and then used food I could see how that might send a mixed message We didn t combine food and found materials in the project so I don t think kids were being sent a mixed message Also we selected veggies from a local farm stand and returned them to a compost when we were done so in this case I think the benefits were worth it reply ProfSharon says February 12 2016 at 2 00pm Hello I know from my own work with young children that this is often a really appreciated activity It enables children to explore the material and play with the results Printing really is a great art exploration activity I do want to offer the idea that using food as an art material is not okay with many parents teachers and cultural beliefs When the art studio also talks about trash being a wonderful resource of materials are you giving the message inadvertently that food is trash Food is a resource that many cannot afford to use as an art material Just a thought today reply daria wilber says February 12 2016 at 2 00pm Thank you for the veggie station idea I am planning to use fruit veggie prints
