Students use string and watered down tempera paint to make these wonderful symmetrical mono prints.
-Using materials appropriately
The students first put their names on two pieces of paper, put on a paint shirt, grabbed a magazine, and sat ready to go. On their tables I placed water down tempera paint on bucket lids; red, yellow, blue. I then put two pieces of yarn in each color (about 14 inches long).
The students place the 2nd paper on top of the first (which has the string on it) and put a magazine on top. Slowly pull the string out. Peal the papers apart and repeat until finished.
