At Kindergarten we value the process as much as the end product. Screen Printing is a great activity we routinely provide for children to learn and follow guidelines - and be creative.
This week we had a plan....to make self portraits.
It started on Monday with children drawing themselves with pencil on an A5 size piece of paper.
Next, they wrote their name on the back of a sheet of screen printing paper,
turned it over, then created' themselves.
Most children re-drew their heads, body and limbs but for some they elected to use shapes available in the baskets.
1. Drop down the screen and squeeze out the paint (today we are using mauve)
2. Use the 'squeegee' to spread out the paint
Lace is a expert screen printer so spreads the paint evenly and competently.
3. Raise the screen, peel off the shapes and put them in the bin.
4. Hang up print and wash hands.
Ka pai - a job well done!
Erin in full swing....
I hope Erin returns to embellish her print.
Tomorrow, (Turei 10th June) is another day and there will be children embellishing their prints and others coming to begin the process.....
