Year 3 Monoprints
This term, year 3s are focusing on printing. We are starting slowly and they were introduced to printing by creating a monoprint. Students inked up their plastic sheet and placed it on lithograph paper. They flipped over their paper and drew their images onto the back of their paper. There was plenty of opportunity for learning as students had to make sure that they used the appropriate amount of ink as well as making sure their plastic sheet did not stick to their paper to create successful prints. Some clever students learned that if they wanted to write a word on their paper they need to write the letters and word backwards.
