Symbolic Prints

These prints came out awesome!  First we looked at and discussed the work of Joaquin Torres Garcia.  Through discussion, we realized that you can really tell a story through images.  The student's challenge was to draw or design  symbols  which encapsulated who they are as person. They also had to strategize as to how to use the space of the printing plate to highlight or bring focus to those things that were most important to them.  Although this lesson is not over, I wanted to share some of this great work.  I hope to be working with our Language Arts teacher to have the students create poems based on their work.
