City Prints

Children of all ages joined me recently at the OKCMOA to learn about printmaking. This fun art project had us painting and printing our hearts out.

First we used watercolors to create the backdrop for our cities. We painted the top half of our paper with warm colors to represent the sky and the bottom half with cool colors to represent water.

We set our papers aside to dry and move to our next step.

Now we draw our city design on printing foam. We used a pencil to press firmly into the foam leaving the valleys that will be our lines when we print.

Photobucket

Now cut your city outline out of the foam and get ready to print. We used Speedball ink to load our brayers and spread a thin about of ink on our city.

Photobucket

We line up our city on the top half of our watercolor paper and press all over the backside of the foam. Carefully lift to reveal your first print.

Photobucket

Now we use the same piece of foam without re-inking and press to create a print on the blue portion or reflection of our city. Carefully lift and you are finished! Make as many prints as you like!

LinkYou will need:
-Scratch-Foam Printing board
-White paper
-Watercolors, brushes, wash bowl
-Pencil
-Scissors
-Printing ink, brayer and plexiglass

Chesterbrook Academy Elementary said...

Beautiful project.
The reflection looks amazing.

Territory Mom said...

Thanks for making it look like even I can do it. Great project!

Mary said...

LOVE this project Erin. Just "pinned" it to my art project board. They all look wonderful.

Erin Laughpaintcreate said...

Thanks everyone!

Brittney, I hope you do use it! They really turned out fantastic.

Mary, I'm guessing you are talking about pinterest. I need to get on there!

:) Happy creating everyone!

Theresa Gillespie said...

This looks like a great idea. I love using the styrofoam printing sheets. I was thinking that it might also work if you printed the top and then quickly folded the paper to cause the ink to transfer a reflection print on the bottom.
Definitely going to give this one a try!

C Mae said...

Erin- What size is the paper that you printed the cities on? 12x18 or smaller?

Anna Pietrolungo, Essendon North Primary School said...

Absolutely fantastic idea. I'd love to use this with my students, I hope you don't mind! Anna:)

Erin Laughpaintcreate said...

Theresa, that is a great idea! Let me know how it turns out!

CMae, These prints went edge to edge. The size of my foam board was 9x12, Which I cut in half giving students 9x6 cuts of foam to work with. I think you could go larger or smaller depending on the size of foam you get/paper you have. The paper we painted and printed on was 9x12. The cities are cut out exposing all that great painted paper. Does that help at all? Sometimes explaining things through blogging is difficult for me! If you were here, I would show you. Total visual learner here! :)

Anna, I hope you do! Thanks for the kind words! :)

What a gorgeous project! Thank you so much for sharing!!

Andrea Slusarski said...

Great inspiration! Would you mind if I included your blog on mine to give some well deserved credit?

I love this, but it is not a true reflection. In order to have a true reflection you'd have to fold on the horizon while the ink was wet. The water would then be a reflection of the skyline.

Nice project, but you can spot that it's not a true reflection. I'm glad others noticed too.

I'm french, so be lenient for my english... It's a great idea and I recently tried it with my students, but one of them (8 years old...) noted that the reflect was not symmetrical ! I finally found a solution : justfold up the paper before ink is dry and it print the exact reflect !
Anyway, thank you for so much brilliant ideas

A. Falck said...

I did this with some kids and teens in the library last month. To get a true reflection, I had the students fold their paper in half and crease it before they started painting. We followed the rest of the instructions up through the first print, but instead of getting a second print from the foam, we folded the paper in half and pressed it really hard all over. It worked great! One of the younger girls made her print while the paper was still wet from painting; the ink smudged and bled, so we decided it was the city on a foggy day, and she was really happy with it. Thanks so much for posting this!

Sussa said...

I love, how they look like, although realised the reflection mistake afterwards. we were talikng about symmetry in the class and I thought this would make a great art piece explaining that. So, you can imagine there was a lot of confusion and explaining afterwards...
