Printmaking Techniques You Can Do Anywhere

There are so many ways to use printing as an artistic medium. But we can often be intimidated by printmaking ideas that use special kinds of paint or tools like brayers and printmaking blocks.  This workshop offers simple techniques for exploring printmaking using things students can easily find at home or even outside. The entire series shows you how to use textures, easy tools like crayons, markers, and copy paper, as well as some more advanced techniques if you want to try something new.

In this preview, Amy Traggianese shares some interesting printmaking ideas using cardboard, marker caps, tempera paint, and sponges that students can do at home or in class.
