More Exploring with Printmaking

The wonderful thing about printmaking with Preschoolers is the pure excitement when an image appears that they were not expecting.  There favorite thing to say lately is a drawn out "WHAAT!" which I just adore.  That is exactly what I heard from the kid's when I presented the bottom of a celery stalk for printmaking.  We also explored using the bottom of bottles, and in both cases the results were different than what the children thought they would be.  They made very pretty flower patterns as you will see in the pictures below.  Printmaking is definitely one of those art processes that I am finding the children absolutely love.  We have used apples, potatoes, leaves, paint rollers, peppers, foam, stamps, popcorn, flower petals, cars, hands, snakes, okra, and now bottles and celery stalks I am excited to see what will be next...hmm we haven't done foot prints...
