Today we had such a great day in AP Art! I mean... really super great day! We were monoprinting with gelli plates. Ok, the set up was a lot and making the gelli plates did take some time. But (insert whoo hoo here) it was exciting. We flipped the classroom and students prepped for the lesson on their own. They were given an electronic folder of on-line resources and videos to review before starting. Students prepped stencils and color schemes before coming into the classroom. This allowed students to jump right in and start printing. Each student had their own printing station and space to create a multitude of prints. Students were layering acrylics, using stencils, incorporating their figure drawings, cutting original stencils, adding xerox transfer and hand coloring. And tomorrow...we get to do it all again!
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
