blotted line monoprints that my younger students created. Today I'd like to share those made by my older students (8-12). After doing this lesson with my younger students I realized that they needed to paint the soup cans larger in order to create enough room to write the labels. The kids did a great job creating the monoprints, as well as using colour to differentiate their two artworks.
I also had them use the colours of their choice for the soup can labels. Like those of my younger students, there were mixed results. One alternative that I was quite pleased with was writing the labels in white, since it really pops (pun intended!) against the bright colours.
This student's decision to create yummy raw sewage soup was hilarious.
There were a number of students who, like Jane, added dots to their soup cans. I also like how she turned the centre dot into a mini 'magic' label.
Unfortunately, this student was away on the final day when the class added the labels, however I really like the addition of vertical stripes to their background.
This student created soup for their pet cat after learning that Andy Warhol had 25!
These soup cans provide an nice opportunity to see the difference between black and white labels.
This student's use of Pokemon colours for his soup can has me thinking that by picking labels first the kids could choose colours to match rather than arbitrary ones.
This student created an extra monoprint, turning the can of bear soup into an actual bear!
