Printing Holiday Trees

 
Posted by Picasa

The holiday excitement begins...
The curved lines of the trees were printed from toilet paper rolls cut in half and the lights were finger painted. I demonstrated how to use the printing tool to shape the tree. I used the simplest technique of press and lift as  I wanted to leave room for the children to make their own discoveries as they shaped their tree. You see, it's quite challenging to create a triangular shape from a curved line tool.  I was very happy to see such unique outcomes.

We've done the before with a straight line tool, click here to see that process.
