Printmaking is an art that is almost as old as humans themselves. Fortunately, with the Melissa & Doug Scratch Foam Classroom Pack you have an opportunity to use the same creative principles of scratch art to teach printmaking. All your budding printmakers need to do is to simply draw their designs with pencil or ballpoint pens, then apply them with only a little pressure to the foam surface, which in turns makes dozens of beautiful prints on the surfaces you choose. All printing inks, tempera, and acrylics can be used with this set. This kit contains everything you need to teach your child or classroom full of children about printmaking in an easy and economical way.
