Collograph Printing

Third and fourth grade artists learned about collograph printing.  Collograph comes from the french work for glue, colle. Can you think of another art term that has the same root?  

Each student created a plate based on a nature word.  We used a combination of natural objects and found or recycled materials to create our plates.  Through much trial and error, we discovered that we had the best luck with printing our plates when using damp paper and acrylic paint.  

Stay tuned to see how third and fourth graders integrate these prints into some writing around their nature words.
