    Students will learn to use a tracer and create shapes and lines to make designs. Using a monoprinting technique, students will fill the work with tie-dye like colors.

    Project Description

    Students will also enjoy the hands-on magic of printmaking.

    Instructions

    1. Draw or trace a big shape in the middle. Then add five lines from the shape to the edge of the page to create sections.
    2. Fill each section outside of the shape with designs. Shapes and lines make the best designs.
    3. Add oil pastel on the top of the designs.
    4. Color with water-based markets on plastic, then spray water on top. Place the paper down on top of the wet marker and give the page a “back rub.” When finished, lift up the paper to reveal the final print.
