    with soap and water and brushes can be safely rinsed in the sink An alternative to the Polycrylic is to use any brand acrylic gloss medium available at art supply stores I prefer to use the Polycrylic gloss from the hardware store because you get more for your money Once the second coat is completely dry the pipe is ready to ink up and roll Try tempera paints or any water based printing ink and use a brayer to get the paint into all the nooks in the yarn and plastic netting See my previous post for printing surface suggestions An easy alternative to the process above is to cut out shapes from sheets of adhesive back foam available at craft stores and stick them to the PVC pipe Try printing multiple colors at once by rolling sections of the pipe in different colors Mix the handmade printing roll with stamps or drawings or print directly onto a tee shirt or make your own wrapping paper The great thing about these printing rolls is they can be rinsed off in the sink and used again and again PVC pipe is available in different diameters so you could create an assortment of large rolls and mini rolls The third and final post on printing with found materials will appear next week so stay tuned by Diana MacKenzie Tags adhesive foam possibilities in print printmaking with children printmaking with kids pvc pipe roll prints This entry was posted on Sunday March 18th 2012 at 8 00 am and is filed under By Diana MacKenzie Elementary School Found Materials High School 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through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions dianam says February 12 2016 at 2 06pm Hi Michele I m sorry to hear you couldn t access one of our web activities Email me at DianaM carlemuseum org and I will email you the PDF Thanks for following us reply Michele says February 12 2016 at 2 06pm Hi I was trying to open the PDF on printing with found objects would couldn t access the file Would it be possible to email it to me Thank you for your help I love your blog Michele reply Contributors Meghan Burch Diana MacKenzie Categories About This Blog 1 Bookmaking 24 By Diana MacKenzie 76 By Meghan Burch 63 Classes 22 Collage 66 Displays Window Shades 11 Drawing 50 Elementary School 97 Every Day Art Program 63 Found Materials 48 High School 25 Homemade Materials and Tools 16 Infants and Toddlers 47 Internship Program 25 Light 12 Middle School 33 Mixed Media 66 Nature 46 Our Approach 22 Our Favorite Materials 10 Outreach 23 Painting 57 Paper 37 Preschool 81 Printmaking 39 Professional Development

  • On Limitations... | Carle Museum
    I learned that drawing was his preferred way to work perhaps his artistic safe zone and that he especially liked the Manga style I asked him if he already had an idea for a picture he d like to make today and let him know that collage was about making things with shapes So I suggested I know you like drawing but what if for today you made your idea with shapes Maybe you could just give it a try He did He worked for a long time and he was pleased with his work Sometimes we offer limited colors to help our guests make discoveries about color or color relationships For instance if we offer just blue and yellow paint a new artist young or old might mix them on their paper and discover green In the Studio we try to watch for these moments and help them be noticed For another example if I m going to select materials inspired by a picture book about a visit to the beach I might offer all colors but sort them by temperature warm colors red yellow orange to suggest the sun and sand and cool colors green blue violet to suggest the water Offering limited colors is a way for our guests and students to learn about color without us saying today you are going to learn about color temperature when they walk in the door Cathy Topal and Lella Gandini also make an interesting note in reference to working with found objects in their book Beautiful Stuff pg 90 As soon as we limit children to one color the possibilities open up Children become much keener and more discriminating observers and so do the teachers So this is where I hope you will weigh in How do you approach materials choices with children or students of any age Do you offer specific materials Let them have access to all their materials all the time Something else If you liked this post you might also like Labeling Materials for All Ages and Helping Children Problem Solve by Meghan Burch Tags challenge creativity limitations resourcefulness learning This entry was posted on Thursday February 16th 2012 at 11 05 am and is filed under By Meghan Burch Collage Drawing Elementary School Every Day Art Program Found Materials High School Infants and Toddlers Middle School Mixed Media Nature Our Approach Painting Paper Preschool Printmaking Professional Development Sculpture 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 amy says February 12 2016 at 2 07pm I have this right in my about page I m providing materials some inspiration and a place to make art I m purposely limiting the materials so the kids don t
