Exploring the World through Monoprint

We are focusing on printmaking and drawing in Spring 1.


Building on the exploration of drawing in the Autumn, this topic starts with two explorations of drawing – one drawing from photographs and film, and two drawing from small, closely observed objects.

Both sessions support children to develop drawing and mark making skills.


Children are then introduced to mono print. They explore the work of an artist who uses mono print in his own work, and are introduced to a simple mono print technique.


This unit encourages children to take creative risks and use drawing as a way to playfully invent and create narratives.


Themes: Natural and Manmade Forms, Invention, Narrative

Medium: Graphite pencils, Oil Pastels, Carbon Paper 

Artists: Xgaoc’o X’are, Leonardo Di Vinci
