2nd grade monotypes

We had a great experience making monotypes this week.  We actually painted the plate on our tables and
used a q-tip for drawing the image.  We then placed a piece of paper on top, burnished with our palm and pulled the print... voila!
The bottom image shows the process.

Kindergarten Monotypes


  1. Did you use printing ink, tempera, or???

    1. Hello, I used regular Crayola Washable Tempera in the squeeze bottles. I just walked around each table and squirted about 2 quarters worth of paint. The pulled prints were 8x11 or so. To get everyone started on the right size I pre-painted the square(ish) shape for the 1st class and then everyone just followed that size in the next class.
