primary school: printing + inking: lighthouses

Creative Arts with Craignish Primary School: LIGHTHOUSES. Lino/easyprint printing and inks. We are so used to drawing in black, not white; lino-printing means you ‘draw in white’. Painting Lighthouses on tall lengths of wood and we mixed Blues in acrylics, a fun tactile memory for all; children don’t get to play enough at school with mixing paint. (There are more colours than the 3 primaries.) The youngest children worked with coloured inks on watercolour. To encourage free splashy soft mark-making. I later printed up a limited edition of prints, 5 per child for 36 children for an exhibition I put up for the school to sell their work; very professional with frames for each print. The children were so proud.
