Linoleum Carving of Animals

Sixth Grade is learning about Albrecht Durer and his textured woodcuts and engravings.Each student chose a photograph of an animal to draw on the 4 x 6 wondercut (linoleum)
First step was to outline the animal in a thin tool.

Then they decided which areas would be white or solid using a sharpie .

 They enjoyed using the carving tools to make thin and thick lines of texture.

A background was decided to add interest and more texture.

Lastly, they each designed their own signature with their initials.
