Art in the Open Learning Programme

This can be done by providing pupils with pre-cut corrugated cardboard square approx 12 cm by 12 cm. Pupils must then create multiple identical shapes to layer up to create a block. It is best to start with simple shapes such as leaves or flowers.

Start by creating one shape out of cardboard and then use this as the template with which to create further shapes. eg. Cut one flower, draw around it, cut another flower and then so on. The individual flower shapes can then be stuck together using glue sticks, and will form one block for printing.

Paint the cardboard shape only, using a paint brush and acrylic or poster paint. You can then use your block to print with.
