About Me

My photo
Guymon, Oklahoma, United States
I am blessed to live where my grandfather homesteaded, to have three beautiful daughters who are my best friends, to have six delightful grandchildren who live nearby, to be married to my sweetheart of 35 years and to thrill to the special magic of creating my own works of art. I'll never cease to thrill to witnessing new ideas and images come to life from the point of a pencil or splash of a brush. I am blessed.

ERASER CARVED PRINTMAKING

I just started a printmaking unit with my first hour, craft students.  I've learned that it is best to teach students how to carve personal stamps by starting with a little piece of vinyl erasers. 

This weekend I took some of my stamps and did a few quick examples to demonstrate how they can creatively use their new stamps.  Monday morning I will drag out watercolors, markers and remnants of handmade papers and let them experiment.  Their job will be to come up a number of quality prints on a variety of different, creative surfaces.
