Students learned how to create a mono-print composition.
We voted on the designs we wanted to use for our mono-print blocks.
The winner designs were: The big fish, the little fish, the wheel, the leaf and the apple.
I drew the designs on Styrofoam sheets.
The students used the end of a small paint brush to "cut" into the design.
I showed them how to create deep grooves so that the paint would not sink in.
Preparing the background for the mono-print composition.
We applied acrylic paint to the foam.
The students were instructed to avoid the grooving areas of the mono-print.
Observing what happens to the images when more paint is required.
Controlling the paint results in a successful mono-print.
Pressing hard with both our hands.
Voila! a successful composition.
