Printmaking Week 6

LESSON TITLE: Printmaking (6 of 6)
TEACHER NAME: Jennifer November
GRADE LEVEL: 7th & 8th
CLASS TIME: _1hr 45_Minutes _1_Days/week _6_# Class(es)


Students will finish printing all layers of reduction prints.

Students will mount finished prints on cards for final product.


  • Pencil
  • Erasers
  • 4×6 Linoleum block
  • 4.5×6.5 Card-stock (can be found at most craft stores often used for scrapbooks)
  • 5×7 Blank cards and envelopes (used for mounting later)


We have come to the final class of our session. This is the day when everything needs to be finished. The last layer of the block should be the outline layer. This should be the last thing that get carved out of the block, and should be an outline that is at least as thick as the sharpie mark that was made when the print was traced over.

The finished prints can be mounted on the blank cards by using a non-acidic adhesive such as a tape runner that may be used on scrapbooks.

Follow Up

Over the week students spent some of their own time working on the cards on order to catch up on the amount of cards we produced. When they came into class our main focus was to make the remainder of the amount of cards ordered. The reduction prints were finished. (Only one of my students was able to create all three layers of the print this included to outline layer, the rest of the students were able to create two layers on the colored paper giving them three layers of color, missing the outline layer did not take anything away from the final product so this was okay in the end).

They all were really happy with the end products. Some of the feedback they gave me was:

Glad they had the powerpoint when this was introduced because they knew what all of the tools were called and how they were used.
They were happy they got to work on two projects at once.
Enjoyed the one on one instruction I was able to give them.
