Wood Block Printing with middle school classes

I'm not going to type much tonight- hoping the pictures speak for themselves.....but I want to note that wood block printing is LABOR INTENSIVE and, for most sixth and seventh graders, it is a huge safety responsibility due to working with chisels.

I loved watching them struggle through the frustrations of carving- I hope they learned a teeny, little bit about how to persevere.

I loved even more seeing their completed prints and knowing how much effort they put into it.

At the end of the project they edited their prints and matted them for completion......nicely done middle school!!!!
