3rd Grade Collograph Prints

Students learned about what a collograph print is, what a composition is and various printmakers.  We watched some videos online on how to make a collograph plate ( and I showed them my own process (see images at bottom).  We used black printing inks and brayers, but you could use a sponge and tempera paint - you just wouldn't get as nice of detail.

Look for feathers, buttons, foam cut outs, string, burlap and more!  Look how amazing they turned out!!

I used these 5 images below in my own powerpoint to show kids how I made can use them too!  Helps break down the process (but so does the video I posted above)
