Our goal is to purchase a set of Gelli plates and accompanying printmaking materials. Gelli plates can get expensive when purchasing a class set, and this grant would help facilitate our art program's ability provide these materials that will benefit all grade levels.

Goal

Our goal is to purchase a set of Gelli plates and accompanying printmaking materials. Gelli plates can get expensive when purchasing a class set, and this grant would help facilitate our art program's ability provide these materials that will benefit all grade levels. These print plates will be able to be used repeatedly for many years and many future students as well. 

 

What will be done with my students

Students will have the opportunity to create printmaking projects using the Gelli Plates. All grade levels, K-5, can use the materials and create different artworks with them. Not only can they make straightforward prints, but also creative papers that can be used in other mixed media projects.  

 

Benefits to my students

This unique material is a great printmaking experience for students. The possibilities of the artwork they can create are endless. Students will meet the art standards for printmaking, but will also have an unforgettable time doing it with the unique art supplies. Gelli Plate printmaking is also great for ESE students, it is a very sensory oriented process with immediate results.  

 

Describe the Students

All 500+ students, K-5, have art, so our art room is a very diverse. All students come to art, whether they are ELL, low performers, high performers, ESE, Gifted, Tier 1-3 for learning or behavior, and ASD. They all receive an equitable art education.  

 

Budget Narrative

We will purchase 12 large format Gelli Plates. We will also need plastic trays to facilitate the efficient use of the Gelli Plates, and printmaking ink in a variety of colors. These materials can be purchased from Blick Art Supplies & Amazon.
