In addition, each unit provides application suggestions for using the completed work, evaluation objectives, and ideas for expanding upon the lesson. Units include lessons on batik; enameling; resist printmaking; relief printmaking with paper, string, and wood strips; relief printmaking with felt pen, India ink, charcoal, crayon, cut paper, and linoleum or wood blocks; stitchery; hooking; weaving; constructing; modeling; slab sculpture; casting; mosaics; drawing; and painting.
