More Children's Mono Prints!

On Monday, I told you about the wonderful Children and Teens Print Exhibition Please Touch Museum is part of for the 2010 Philagrafika Festival. The project is part of Prints Link Philadelphia, which is a coalition of community arts organizations, art centers, museums, teaching artists, and pre-k through higher education art educators who are interested in promoting printmaking for children and teens in the Philadelphia region. We here at Please Touch Museum are thrilled to be a part of a project that truly appreciates the educational value and celebrates the unique creativity of children's art.

Take a peek at today's featured mono prints made by some of Please Touch Museum's very talented young visitors and artists! And be sure to check back here on Friday for the final batch of mono prints.





Ashley uses a rainbow of colors to create an interesting pattern.













Brent, Age 5, creates patches of color using foam brushes.











Caitlin, Age 7, uses a varied set of tools to create angular patterns.











Charlotte, Age 2, enjoys mono printing as a sensory experience.










David, Age 8, depicts a smiling face in his mono print.










Jackson, Age 5, uses patterned rollers, his own hands, and stampers to create a layered look.
