Several classes are exploring the art of printmaking. They painted a plate for a monoprint, where a temporary image is made to make one print. The other type is a relief print. It is an additive process where materials are used to make two levels on the printing plate. 2nd grade is gluing rope on cardboard to make raised images. ART SMART words: printmaking, medium, plate, pulling the print, monoprint and relief.

- Michelle "Meche" Farah; I have a BFA in Painting and Illustration and Art History Minor from The Savannah College of Art and Design. Before I discovered a love to teach, I worked in interior design, and film production. My teaching certification is from Jacksonville University. This is my 13th year as a teacher and 4th year at Fort Caroline Middle. I teach Art History and sculpture. I am a professional decorative painting artist and a former board member of NeFAEA- Northeast Florida Art Educators Association. I am an active FAEA- Florida Art Education member and attend state conference every year. I have also attended nationals conference several times. My FAVORITE project is "Recycle-Transformation" which simply means going green and making old items new and appreciated. Our FUTURE is in our hands, I include recycled materials in student projects. In my art program students practice the disciplines of art history, art production, art aesthetics, and art criticism. It is not only important to make and learn about art but how to discuss it and bring value and meaning to it. Thanks for viewing our art blog, we are glad you stopped by!
