Winter collagraph prints, 3rd grade

These charming prints were created by gluing a variety of foam and corrugated paper shapes to a mat board printing plate, then rolling with white printing ink and printing on colored paper. Finally, we folded a white paper into fourths and cut paper frames - we even made snowflakes from the remaining paper for no waste! The plates took two sessions to assemble, with one session for printing (3 per student) and one more session for framing and uploading to Artsonia.
Most of the shapes were cut by hand, although the snowflakes and snow men were precut.


  1. These look great! What is your favorite type of printing ink to use?

    1. Thanks Marcia - I use Dick Blick brand water based printing ink.
