Printmaking Collograph Kit

Coming up with different art projects to satisfy a child's curious mind can be difficult sometimes. Eye Can Art makes this task much easier with their art-in-a-can kits. The Printmaking Collograph Kit comes with everything you need for a fun afternoon of art and creativity.

Collograph printing is simple printmaking. Your child will design a face and then use the brayer (or roller) to print the image onto construction paper. All the supplies are included: the paper, glue, two colors of paint, brayer, and even the scissors and a crayon. The only thing you will need to provide is the newspaper to put underneath and your child's imagination. Included is a detailed instruction book with notes for the parents to read as well. There is also a video on their website that shows exactly how to use the printmaking set. The implements are high quality and durable, and the paints are non-toxic.

My children really enjoyed this unique, fun project. You can reuse the brayer, so once your children have learned the technique they can continue to create and print fun images. This would also be a great hands-on teaching tool to use when your children are learning about printing in history. We really had fun with this easy yet educational art product.
