Japanese Ukiyo-e Prints

This lesson is going to be an extension of my first lesson from last class here at USC. My first session was on paper making and writing. My new lesson is on Ukiyo-e prints where students will continue to learn about Japanese artwork through printmaking. Students are also going to be given the option to use their own paper that they created in the first lesson and use towards their printmaking artwork. I understand that using real wood might be too costly or dangerous for some schools and classroom so you could also use styroform which is cheaper and safer. I am taking the Ukiyo-e prints that depicted the everyday life and interests of the common people and asking kids to take photographs of their everyday lives to make connections. We will also be learning how Japanese artwork became so popular in western cultures

Great to see another art lesson. However, you may want to double check your standards, you just added the section not the standards. Also would love to see your PowerPoint presentation? For materials you will also need mixing trays, sponges, and aprons. What age group are you planning on teaching?
