Sometimes one can be struck with utter genius! I am so excited about these projects because they came out so well!!!
After Youth Art Month, all of the classes are working on their final projects of the year, based upon one of the artists introduced. The 4th grade, focused on Andy Warhol.
Then they used a styrofoam printing plate, traced around it on their white papers as a template, and drew a cylinder. Next, they turned it into an Andy Warhol Style Campbell Soup Can.
Then went over their lines, pressing hard. Next placing the styrofoam plate under their drawings, they traced the drawing backwards onto the plate. After, tracing their lines once more to make sure the entire drawing transferred.
Then they printed!
Update: Since we are at the last weeks of school, I had to speed up this process for some of the kids that were behind. They just printed on construction paper! I think these came out even better than the original version!
