Make the Scene (Grade 3)
· Use a variety of lines
· Use a new medium
· Create a print
· Sandpaper (4.5x6 approximately)
· Crayons or oil pastels
· Black and white construction paper (9x12)
This is a 2 week activity. Show examples of prints. Discuss how they look different than a regular painting or drawing. Review prints we have done here at school with gadgets, Styrofoam plates, etc. Talk about what they usually color on in art classroom. Tell them today they will not use paper but will use sandpaper for their art work. Demo how to apply the crayon to the sandpaper. It must be a simple drawing and colored very darkly. No words or letters or numbers. It is best if the whole sandpaper is covered with crayon. Teacher turns the sandpaper upside down on the black paper and uses a very hot iron to press the back of the sandpaper to transfer the color. Carefully remove sandpaper. Some look like pointillism. Some will be more solid in color. It depends how much crayon they use. Glue the original to the print. Some will look like a reflection. Kids “ooh and aah” when the sandpaper is lifted and they see their prints for the first time.
