Print MAKING!
Printmaking is the process of transferring an inked design onto a surface
The tool used to roll the ink out, and then used to roll the onto your design.
The tool used to press your inked plate to your paper.
The surface that is used to create the design.
A practice print that is properly labeled.
A final print that is labeled # / total made
Carved lines that are kept to create texture, detail, and value.
Step Two #DESIGN
* Create a positive and negative design

Examples
Printmaking!
1. Opposites are everywhere. In printmaking we have positive and negative.
What are other opposites that you can think of? If one is without the other, how does it change things?
Would people be as appreciative?

2. Why is compassion and kindness so important?
When has someone been kind or compassionate to you?
How did it make you feel?
Let's Collaborate!

Positive & Negative:
Dark and Light
Commitment to Compassion
I choose to make a commitment to compassion. Motivated by the wish to promote happiness and reduce suffering in all sentient beings, may my actions of body, speech, and mind reflect justice, respect and equality. May I work to reduce violence, exploitation and prejudice at the personal, local and global levels. May I connect with all humanity in protecting our planet and the diversity of life it supports.
How does kindness connect with art?

How can artists make a difference?

How can YOU make a difference?
Enduring Understanding
Artists can change the world, or at the very least influence others.
Visual arts are a powerful means of expression.
Back to the Art!
What can you write to lift up or inspire someone else?
SAFETY
*ALWAYS cut away from your hands.
Keep hands BEHIND the linocutter.

* IF you cut yourself, throw the blade away.
Dispose of in "sharp" container.

*See the teacher if you cut yourself:
Cuts must be cleaned with soap and water, medical ointment applied, and bandaids applied.

NO HORSEPLAY!
Demos
USE ONLY WHAT YOU NEED!

ABOUT THE AMOUNT YOU USE TO BRUSH YOUR TEETH (toothpaste).
* Place paper on top of inked plate and use a baren to transfer the ink onto your paper

* Carefully peel the paper away to reveal your print
Our Inspiration
Katsushika Hokusai
MC Escher
Labeled "proof"
Number goes on bottom left under the print.
This means this is the 6th print out of an edition of 100 prints.
Step One
Research #INQUIRE
