Rashid Teaches Printmaking Workshop To Little Kiddies!
Location: Merril Road Christian Center
Teacher: Mrs. Tracy Morris
Tempera (Intead of Ink)
Regular White paper
The kids were great!! Mrs. Morris is my daughter's kindergarten teacher and invited me give the kids a mini-printmaking workshop. I started by showing the children all the cool marks they could make with everyday stuff on styrofoam plates. Then I showed them how to ink the plate and lay the paper on top to pull the image. Some kids liked to use their hands to apply enough pressure to pull an impression. Some liked to use the small block printing press I brought.
After they got the hang of it the kids really took to the process. There were 5 kids and each pulled at least 3 different prints. Not bad for kindergarteners!
It was great FUN!!
