Woodcut Art

In art today, we took a look at the pictures in "Snowflake Bentley". Mary Azarian used woodcut printing to make the pictures in the book. We thought we'd try our hand at it today. Here's what we needed:

  • sharpened pencil
  • green styro foam floral block ~ we used 4" x 4"
  • sheet of paper
  • 8 1/2" x 11" card stock
  • paint
  1. cut card stock into four squares
  2. the floral block was traced onto the sheet of paper
  3. kids sketched their idea within the outline
  4. with a sharp pencil they drew design onto block
  5. then carefully scrap out styro foam from within the lines or areas you don't want covered with paint
  6. paint the remaining flat surface of block
  7. press the painted surface onto a piece of cardstock
