It's been a while since I have posted, so I decided to go through some photos and share some of the artwork the kids have created so far this year. This project was the first foray into printing they have done. It is foam plate printing using Speedball ink and a brayer. They loved it! We learned about El dia de los Muertos, and the kids drew the picture first and then went over the picture after placing it on top of the foam printing plate. We were excited with the way they turned out!

I gave the students basic step by step instructions and then let them loose to give them their own personalities. They were allowed to use crayons, markers, and colored pencils to add the details. Quite a successful project!
