Prints and Patterns

For Teachers

Printmaking and its resulting multiple images are fascinating to students of all ages. Even the youngest students can experience simple forms of relief printing, and the other traditional printmaking methods--intaglio, lithography, and serigraphy--are adaptable to meet the abilities of your students. The Internet offers a number of online printmaking resources that provide inspiration and enhance understanding of printmaking processes.
