Creative ReMix Margaret Naylor

Working with the theme of nature Artist, Margaret Naylor introduced the children to printmaking techniques. They began with a visit to Van Dusen gardens with the intent of looking at diverse shapes, sizes and colors of leaves. Inspired from this visit and the resources the artist provided, they created imagery first by drawing, then cutting, creating a printing block which enabled them to ‘pull a print’. Finally, they embellished their work with collage and descriptive words. They were introduced to block printing, Styrofoam line printing and lino cuts.
