    drawings as stencils for cutting the vellum Layering the vellum under the drawings she cut through both at once using an Exacto type blade Then she laminated and trimmed them a little being careful to leave at least 1 4 of laminating material around each shape The last thing I added was a spread from the book Sow and Grow by Tina Davis diagramming the parts of a flower in beautiful line drawings I copied the spread onto acetate sheets so they could be placed right on the light table If you want to create a similar activity for your classroom or home look for colored vellums in the scrap booking section of the craft store You could use diagrams of flowers from a Google search to inspire your shapes for the flower parts Better yet invite your students or children to disect flowers and draw flower parts that can be used as stencils We limited the selection to three shapes for each of three parts of flowers 9 shapes total but you could do as many as you wanted Since our shapes are somewhat abstract we made all 3 pistins stamens ovules green and the 3 calyx teal to create some visual order Copy shops have laminating services ask for a heavy weight film if your shapes need to hold up to heavy use by Meghan Burch Tags color composition flowers gardening laminated activties light light table organic shape shape sow and grow vellum This entry was posted on Friday June 14th 2013 at 1 12 pm and is filed under Infants and Toddlers Light Nature Preschool 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through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions KevinTran says February 12 2016 at 1 51pm Nice post reply bug says February 12 2016 at 1 51pm I wish you had templates we could download and trace to use at home These are gorgeous Website http www eggjuicewithpepperoni com Mail will not be published eggjuicewithpep hotmail com reply Contributors Meghan Burch Diana MacKenzie Categories About This Blog 1 Bookmaking 24 By Diana MacKenzie 76 By Meghan Burch 63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 29 Resources 5 Sculpture 44 Space to Create 2 Special Events 90 Special Guests and Artist Visits 34 Archive February 2016 1 January 2016 1 December 2015 4 November 2015 3 October 2015 2 September 2015 2 August 2015 4

  • Easy Paper Marbling | Carle Museum
    is the process of creating designs by floating pigment on the surface of a liquid substance like water or oil When you gently press a substrate like paper or cloth to your colored surface you ll get a swirly psychedelic transferred design Here s an accessible and kid friendly interpretation of marbling that I found and adapted for AfterCare Materials containers with seal able lids shallow pans vegetable oil food coloring forks spoons skewers and sturdy paper like card stock In a few containers with tightly seal able lids mason jars work well I combined about 1 4 cup vegetable oil with a generous amount of food coloring I shook up my dye vigorously enough to get it looking pretty homogenous When I arranged our workspace I put down plenty of newspaper over two long tables and then put our supplies in the center I set out two rectangular cake pans filled about halfway with water our jars of colored oil spoons forks wooden skewers and a stack of light colored card stock I knew this activity had the potential to be messy so I put the marbling station in the center of the workspace so that kids could surround the materials from all sides and then quickly transfer drippy paper to the newspaper at either side I had a few eager marblers right off the bat and once we got going more inquisitive kids joined us I had them start by spooning drops of oil onto the water For the sake of keeping our designs from getting too muddy we had a pan for warm colors orange and red and cool colors blue and green After they had added enough for the surface to be fairly crowded with colorful blobs we used the forks and skewers to stir the oil into swirly patterns Then one by one we each touched the card stock to the liquid for about three seconds It was such fun to see the kids thrilled reactions to their beautiful marbled prints their enthusiasm was palpable and soon we had a quick paced marbling factory running at the back of the classroom The kids were responding to one of the most captivating things about printmaking which may be my favorite part of the process the small moment of suspense before you see the print you just pulled Will it be beautiful weird unexpected perfect or all of those things It s a joy to watch kids have that experience and it s a great reminder of why art education is so important For more information about The Art Studio Internship Program CLICK HERE by Diana MacKenzie Tags anna mcneary marbled paper studio internship Art Studio Internship Program This entry was posted on Monday May 20th 2013 at 8 00 am and is filed under Elementary School Painting 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
