Well, this isn't really about me or my love of printmaking, but what the students learn, discover and create. Print Around the Room is another in a series of "Around the Room" activities in which students are able to learn vocabulary and explore a media in a short amount of time. After, students can decide for themselves if they've had enough or apply what they've learned to another artwork.
