Art: "Building Independence and Resourcefulness"

At Salem we firmly believe in building a student's ability to work creatively with any resource at hand. For our online class, we experiment with materials easily found in your existing space - making "potato prints" with the theme of "patterns in isolation."

Materials for this lesson:

  • Potatoes (or any vegetables or fruits that when cut in half create a solid surface)
  • Knife (paring knife works the best)
  • Paper
  • Pencil
  • Fabric (solid color pillow case, solid color t-shirt, canvas bag, use what you have)
  • Paint (acrylic paint, house paint, not permanent but you can use ketchup or mustard to see your design if you don't have paint)
