Collaborative Monoprint Cityscapes

Third graders learn the art of printmaking by creating a collaborative cityscape using styro-foam plates. After viewing a series of architectural drawings of historic buildings, the students sketched their favorite then transferred the image to a styro-foam plate.  Using a brayer, they applied the block printing ink to the etched surface then pressed the plate onto the background sheet.  Each sketch was unique adding a variety of interesting buildings.
