Block or Not? (Monoprinting and Stamping)

When is a block, not a block?

Summary:

Students will use a monoprint stamp as a jumping off point for developing imagination and stimulating creativity.

What You Need:

  • paper
  • pencils
  • a piece of polystyrene (rectangular shape)
  • paint (only one color)

What You Do:

  1. Use a paint brush to cover one side of the polystyrene piece with paint.
