Notes on how to use printing techniques to enable children to design and print their own cards

How it maps to the curriculum

Visual Arts

Strand: Print

Strand unit: Making Prints

Content objective:
This resource should enable a child to:

  • experiment with more complex printmaking techniques
  • make prints for functional uses (as well as for their own sake)
  • use more complex print-making techniques to make theme-based or non-representational prints

Suggestions for use: This article will familiarise you with some of the basic printing techniques outlined in the curriculum so that you can in turn experiment with these with your class with the children. It will also provide you with the information to enable you to plan a series of process based lesson plans on the theme of Christmas.
