State Project Relief Prints

In conjunction with their state projects, fourth graders created these relief prints, which feature their state’s bird and flower.  The relief process involves transferring a sketch to a rubber, stamp like material, and using special tools (called gauges) to carve the light areas of the image away. Ink is then applied to the rubber block and the image is transferred to a sheet of printing paper.
