Styrofoam Prints with Watercolors

After viewing paintings done by "Art is what I Teach"

I was inspired to try a similiar idea with printmaking.
Students designed drawings and transferred them to styrofoam. We then printed with watercolors. To finish students went back and outlined organic shapes. This was a fun assignment for 6th graders!

I finally had the students look at Zentangles and we found it to be very similiar to creating patterns, textures and doodling. However they did enjoy creating their designs!
