on the stamping journey

We had a wonderful introduction to stamping last week as we talked about inspiration from nature, geometery and things they liked that inspired them! We created some very basic stamps or 'negative print images' using foam sheets and a blunt pencil to 'engrave' designs...this is a great art project idea at home. I encouraged the children to practice their 'print repeats'at home, making a pattern out of their designs!

This week, we will launch into learning how to carve our designs in rubber!
I can't wait to see what designs they come up with!
