here comes the sun
Students create two sun designs, one on the front, one on the back, on a 4 by 4 inch plate. Students then carve the design so that is about 50% raised and 50% carved away. This makes the design more interesting than a simple line drawing.
Students then print their suns using black, red or pink, yellow, and turquoise or blue. They can create a single layer or double layer using one or both designs. Students are encouraged to experiment with the layering of color, composition and positioning of their plate to see what happens... which is just one of the fun parts of printing!
