The students made careful sketches of their animal before we made them out of clay. We used those sketches to trace onto foam plates and make NH animal prints. We talked about basic printmaking tools; brayer, ink and bench hook. This was a very exciting process for the kids to watch.
We also helped make habitat murals for their classrooms. We used large paper and cray-pa to draw details for pond, field and forest habitats and then liquid watercolors to fill in the background. We got another use out of our animal sketches. We colored them in and glued them into the mural and used scraps to add more details.
