Relief, Rubbings, Resist! 2013

This second grade lesson was so much fun last year that we are doing it again. I would like to thank Room 9: Art! for the great lesson idea. We constructed relief architecture facades using scrap matboard and cardboard, then used them as printing plates for crayon relief rubbings, with a final wash of watercolor resist over the top. The two pieces have different looks - the relief is graphic and sharp, while the resist is atmospheric and soft. The kids really enjoyed it!
