This week we used Alexander Calder paintings as our inspiration and made some beautiful prints. This technique using polystyrene is very effective but also quite tricky. The children had to create a design, etch into the polystyrene and then roll the ink on to their work and print onto paper. To create different colours they had to remove parts of their block and then over print onto the original. They worked very hard to achieve some lovely results.
