Screen Printed Snowflake

2nd, 3rd and 4th grade worked on a second project in art this week and practiced the technique of screen printing. They each cut out a snowflake pattern, and transferred the design on to paper by pressing paint through a screen. In this case a thin piece of cloth stretched over an embroidery hoop. Firm pressure was needed to press the paint through the material. They were able to use the screen more than once to create several prints. While this technique is fairly messy and time consuming, I love seeing the enjoyment the children experience when they try out new art techniques 🙂
