Black History Month: The Harlem Renaissance & Jazz Music

The forth grade had a printmaking project all of their own. They also followed the same introduction as grades 2,3,5.

Their printmaking project consisted of them drawing first on cardboard in pencil, instuments and music notes, with a heavy emphasis on overlapping.

Then they varnished them, and traced their lines with glue. (I highly recommend to varnish several coatsĀ first, or else the glue will not be raised enough to print)

Then they printed!
