Grade 3: Monoprint Butterflies

Earlier this Fall, Toll Gate 3rd graders were excitedly learning about the life cycle of butterflies. Chris Morgan, Media Specialist had live butterflies in the Media Center and a zillion and one books out on display. 
We took one day in the art room to read a book about butterflies, discuss monoprinting and make these pretty butterflies. 
The funny thing is I had just been talking with my friend Andrea about a butterfly project she was finishing up in her Art Room... perfect timing!
These prints are from September:
Notice that the right side (printed side) is lighter
