Thinking with a Line, Teacher's Guide
Cathy Weisman Topal

Inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach and by the work of Friedrich Froebel, this teacher’s guide offers strategies for teaching basic printmaking.

Teachers and students of all ages delight in discovering that with a little piece of cardboard and some paint they can print a multitude of linear structures—shapes, letters, alphabets, signs & posters, patterns, designs, buildings and architectural forms, skeletons, machines, and more… This innovative approach provides an effective and developmentally appropriate approach for increasing visual learning, motor skills, language development, and critical thinking using the basic art element, line.
