During the second part of this project, students began designing their own mandala. Using a worksheet and a ruler, they made marks on each square to make sure their designs matched up when put together. Once they decided on a final design, they transferred the image to a piece of printmaking foam. This was their printmaking plate, a term we talked about that refers to the surface/object the print is made from. Day 3,4 and 5 were all printing days. The students used a different set of colors each day and blended them on their printing plates. They then "pulled a print" from their plate using a piece of paper and their hands. The reason it is called "pulling a print" is because the paint was pulled from the plate onto the paper using the pressure from their hands. Each student pulled at least 8 prints.
