Our First Prints
We set out a big mirror, primary colors and brushes. We gave no direction. There are so many reasons the children loved this activity. Painting on a mirror feels really different than painting on paper. It goes on smoother. You can see yourself as well and that seemed like half the fun.
Secondary colors were easily created and everyone was talking about how they made purple, green and orange.
Some of our friends decided to make another portrait this time right on their face in the mirror.
The next part of this activity involved making a print. This kind of print is called a monoprint because you can only make one.
Printing is a medium that the children always seem to enjoy. Some are even amazed by it and that's fun to watch.
