Monoprinting with Symmetry: Monarchs

This was a really fun project and we learned many important things - we continued our study of balance and symmetry, threw in some printmaking, and topped it off with some science!  Monarchs migrate from Canada to Mexico at this time of year (how smart are they?).  Easy and fun, this is a great one day activity.  Thanks to Art Project Girl for the inspiration!

  1. These look like so much fun! I've decided you deserve an award- I've just been given a Liebster Blog award, and I'm paying it foward to you. Check it out:
    then choose 5 more blogs if you'd like. These things are a little chain-lettery, but it's kind of fun.

  2. Beautiful project.
    I love the boldness of colors and lines.

  3. Yay! I love what Phyl's students added to the project with the white dots! They all look great. I love a project that can be successful for all. and thanks for the shout out;)
