Using Ink Prints to create the Green Ring…

50242200My students have been studying the Olympic Torch over the past few weeks and enjoyed collaborating on the creation of the “Green Ring”, for the Torch Relay presentation as it arrived in Hamilton, Ontario. We used ink printing for this activity. It was great – students use styrofoam plates and carved symbols of the Olympics and shared their prints. It was a great opportunity to use a variety of art materials as they’ve never used ink in this way before. I enjoyed bringing a different type of technology into my classroom and yet I still had a theme of collaboration!inkprints

  1. Hello – saw a Twitter about a possible collaboration. We would be incredibly interested at this end of the world – our class is also in Hamilton, in Hamilton, Waikato, New Zealand. Our students are currently on their summer break and would be back the first week of February in class, would love to do something. Our class page for 2009 (which will also be out 2010 one) is at If you are interesting in getting in touch or collaborating then just drop us a line. Also on Twitter as NZWaikato.
