Art Journaling 124

A simple stamping project worked really well in my afterschool art journal class today. The theme was “Circles”, which some kids turned into faces, some into flowers, and some into sports images, as in this example.
1. I had saved all the center cardboard rolls from my paper towels for quite some time, and found they were the perfect disposable tool to do some quick printmaking. The students dipped them in about 1/2" of liquid watercolor, and did some repeated stamping onto their papers. When the page was full, they gently placed a paper towel on top to soak up extra paint.
2. The paper dries pretty quickly, so I passed out pencil crayons and told them to just be creative with coloring them in. One student even made what looked like a really beautiful wedding ring quilt pattern by overlapping all her circles. Love their creative minds!
