Description

Class Experience

Students will learn a basic stamping technique and apply the technique to make their own creative artwork.
I have taught elementary math and science for four years.  I am certified to teach K-12 art.  I am also certified to teach all subjects (k-6).  Art and design are personal hobbies of mine.
No homework will be assigned.  I will offer some extension activity ideas for interested learners.
Materials needed: 1) a small assortment of Lego bricks (lighter colors preferred) that will get dirty and require clean up (basics bricks and flat plates work the best--larger Duplo blocks are OK and may be easier for younger children to manipulate) 2) a few 1x2 and 2x2 bricks to serve as stamp handles 3) an ink pad (black produces the boldest image but other colors are OK) for stamping the Lego bricks Please make sure it is relatively new so it won't dry out during class. Please see below for further notes about ink type. 4) foam, felt, or soft styrofoam padding that you are ok with getting dirty (will be placed under paper) 5) at least 4 pieces of copier paper or cardstock (8 x 11 inches) 6) markers preferred (crayons and colored pencils OK) 7) something to cover your child's workspace (newspaper, old magazines, scrap paper, etc.) 8) something for your child to wipe the ink off his or her hands and to clean Lego brick (baby wipes, damp paper towel, damp rag, etc.) Optional: ruler Optional: a toothpick or dental pick (to assist with cleaning ink off Legos) Note about ink: I used dye ink when I first experimented with this technique. This type of ink easily rinses off of Legos using tap water. Pigment and archival inks tend to print bolder and more consistently. The downside of these inks is they can be a bit trickier to wash off Legos. I haven't tried the printing technique with washable ink pads. They will probably work, but be more prone to smearing.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students may choose to share their work with their fellow learners at the end of class.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class contains no sensitive material.
