Sweet!

As with so many artists, I’m all about using recycled materials to create works of art. My 1st & 2nd graders produced monoprints using trashed laminating film. We used fall as our themes and painted abstractly across the surface of each “plate”. Fingers were used to draw the images, either leaves or a pumpkin, then we pressed a clean sheet of white paper upon the plates to produce our images. It was fun, messy, and highly addictive for them – some kids made up to 4 monoprints!
