We had an Eric Carle Tissue Paper Workshop scheduled in the Studio yesterday so here’s a peek at one of techniques we use in the workshop to make marks on paper: Put a little paint (like tempera) on a tray or plastic plate, roll a toy truck through it, then “drive” it on paper. This truck is especially fun because it can turn and make curved marks. You might cover a table with big sheets of paper and let your young artists go to town. On the other hand, if you need to set some space parameters you could put a piece of paper in a large cafeteria- like tray to help contain the marks. Happy printing!
