Art Hour @ Webb Elementary IV: Cornucopia Monoprints

For our art project last Friday we made cornucopia monoprints.  This was a little different from our previous painting projects because it was less abstract.  For this one we used an image as a guide, smaller brushes and more colors.  To make our monoprints we started with a cornucopia image and placed a piece of wax paper over it.  Then we slowly painted our image on the wax paper and pressed our black paper down before the paint could dry.  Monoprints are an additive process.  We did thin layers of paint because too much would smear and not enough wouldn’t show up on the black construction paper.  The youth did a great job!  Check out their art below!

 

 

The Horlock Gallery will be closed Thursday-Saturday for the Thanksgiving holiday.  We will resume normal business hours on Sunday.  Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!

Until next time,

Peace, Love, and Thanks 🙂
