The Anna McDonald ACCESS students experimented with mono-printing and chalk pastels as they created these fun Valentine artworks. They started folded their paper in half, and were only allowed to paint on one side (forcing them to print the wet paint onto the other side). We all started with basic hearts. From there, they painted more line details. The tempera dried quickly, so they were able to add color on the same day.
This student got the hang of mono-printing and quickly took off with his own idea. This one looks so much like a Siamese cat face to me. I love it!
I am a K - 5th grade art teacher at Wilson Creek Elementary and Anna McDonald School in Manhattan, IL. I am also a mother of two little girls (who share my love of art)!
