What a Relief!: Intro to Relief Printing

During this camp students will learn the basics of relief printmaking using foam scratchboards and washable markers. Students will learn how to “carve” designs into their foam scratchboards using simple writing utensils and then learn how to print their designs like a stamp using washable markers as ink! Multiple prints can be made using the same scratchboard plate over and over with different colors. Students will be challenged to use their imagination and creativity to pull one unique print after the other. It’s like magic right before your eyes!
