PRINTMAKING

Rockwell's step-by-step instructions for creating the simplest kinds of transfer pictures are illustrated with children's work and with drawings of young printmakers in action. Preschoolers can make prints of their hands dipped in tempera or their fingers pressed in stamp pad ink (the fingerprints perhaps embellished in pencil to make animals and people) and older children can go as far as they want with the two-color linoleum and wood cuts. In between are projects using raised glue on cardboard, objects coated with smoke, cut cardboard, gauged styrofoam, and the standard cut potato. The text, while simple and specific, is geared to adult leaders who will find this a useful source in a surprisingly underexploited field.
