Experiments in printmaking (MS and HS art)

We had an extra day for a quick project in block printing. The demonstration was short and sweet. We had an essential question of: What would the outcome be if if we printed one design on top of another. The evidence lies below.

The idea:
1. Create 2 designs/patterns: 1 organic and 1 geometric
2. Print on top of each other to observe how overlapping changes colors and how overlapping lines intersect.

  2. Very nice project.
    I did it with my MS students back in the States five years ago and I had extended a lesson not just finished by a piece of block printing work on a paper, but also redesigned to cut and paste pieces into creating another type of tile design concept.
