Sealife Printmaking






The third grade studied different kinds of sealife. The completed sketches and then selected one to draw with a dull pencil into our donated foam. We covered the "plate" with printing ink and then laid the paper on top of the foam. It's great if you have old spoons to rub the back. Make sure they don't rub too long or the heat will make removing the paper difficult.

Meet Miss Swiderski


       I have a new student teacher. Her name is Katie Swiderski. I am so excited! Katie is a senior at Western Michigan University with a major in Art Education AND Spanish. As you can see she is an amazingly talented painter. I think the students thought they were in the presence of a celebrity. She is going to be a great addition to our art room.
