3rd grade Jasper Johns prints

The third graders learned about Augusta, Georgia-born artist Jasper Johns.  He's a fun one to learn about!  The students choose special letters and numbers and glued them to create a printing plate.  They tried to remember to glue the numbers and letters backwards so that it would look correct when printed.  This was a hard concept but it really got the kids thinking and talking!  They chose one special number or letter to be large for emphasis.  Next, they created two prints.  Finally, they titled, signed and embellished their prints.  These are amazing true works of art!
