We studied the artist, Mary Cassatt, these last 12 weeks. After doing 4 picture studies, we got together with some friends for a group picture study followed by an art activity.
We did a print making activity, to imitate the print making technique often used by Mary Cassatt.
First everyone painted their own “original” image.
Even my little D (age 3) was having a blast drawing the letter “I” over and over again!
Then we put a blank piece of paper on top, press down and pull up…VIOLA…a print.
(It will work better if the original is painted on a cookie sheet so that the paint isn’t absorbed, but with a group of 12 kids we didn’t attempt that because it will also be messier and harder to clean)
And T’s print…
It is always more fun to work in a group and we al had a great time!
