Make Art @ Home | Creando impresiones con papas (Creating art prints with potatoes)

Crea tus diseños con impresiones de papas, colorantes naturales, y lápices de colores. En esta lección, vamos a recortar patrones de una papa y los vamos a imprimir sobre papel utilizando colorantes de alimentos, creando diferentes diseños. Nuestra inspiración: un textil peruano del Siglo XVI que es parte de la colección de LACMA. Al terminar podrás cocinar el resto de la papa con tu receta favorita.

ADVERTENCIA: Por favor de tener la supervisión de un adulto cuando uses los cuchillos y / o el cuchillo X-Acto para esculpir las papas.

Make an artwork with potato prints, food coloring, and color pencils. Inspired by patterns from a 16th century Peruvian textile from the LACMA collection, we will carve a design into a potato, print it with food coloring, and create interesting patterns. You can even cook and eat the potato with your favorite recipe afterwards!

NOTE: Please have adult supervision when using the knives and/or exacto knife to carve the potatoes.

Materials: potatoes, food coloring, knife or exacto knife
