Printmaking is a dynamic equalizer that connects with students of every experience level. Printmaking in the Classroom introduces Monotype and Relief printing to teaching artists and classroom teachers who are interested in a quality art making experience for yourself and your students. Model lessons will be presented from multiple entry points demonstrating the ways in which the printing process can be matched with the skill set and age level of your students.

Together we will generate curriculum from the viewpoint of the artist, integrating sound teaching practices such as Studio Habits of Mind, multi-disciplinary curriculum integration and a regard for multiple intelligence learning. Particular emphasis will be placed upon ways to make arts learning visible in your classroom and strategies for documenting works in progress.
