ART WITH MS K

Plastic Bag Monoprints

When I came across This Blog Post I knew the process would be perfect for my 1st grade artists.

As a class, we talked about abstract art. Students looked at examples of artwork and noticed that although abstract art is not always a picture of something real, it usually has lots of lines, shapes, and colors.  We began with the primary colors + white of tempera paint.

First graders painted abstract designs onto a baggy and gently pressed it onto white paper.

When they peeled it off, voila! They were left with a magnificent monoprint of mixed up colors.

On the second day of this project, we cut out the prints and arranged them on construction paper. During our last project students absolutely LOVED using stamps and they were thrilled to get another chance here by adding details to their monoprints. The stamps were a big hit again!

  1. Any kind of printing is irresistible and monotypes are so easy for kids to do. Great fun. Well done.
