Fifth grade students learned about positive and negative space during the creation of this linoleum printmaking project. Each student chose a subject matter for their print and carefully drew it on drawing paper. They clearly identified the positive space in their drawing by coloring these areas in with pencil. After transferring their drawing to a piece of linoleum, students carved away the negative areas of their drawing, leaving only the positive areas for printing. Students then used ink and brayers to create multiple copies of their print.
