Learn how to make a relief print out of cardboard, super fast.
Lesson Plan Background:
By creating individual and collaborative cardboard relief print projects, students will engage in process-based methods of print communication to narrate and critically reflect on issues of environmentalism and consumerism in Chicago. Through the use of cardboard as found and reused material, students will become aware of new uses for materials and expand their knowledge of cardboard’s role in commerce, communication, and waste production.
How can we reuse cardboard and engage the material in a message about environmentalism? How can you collaborate with other classmates as activists to engage society through public space about these issues?
If all morning newspapers read in this country were recycled, 41,000 trees would be saved daily and 6 million tons of waste would never end up in landfills.
