Bug Prints

Little Artists became entomologists in this Drawing and Painting Studio, studying a variety of insects, as if they were really found and caught by them for the first time! IMG_6173 IMG_6174

Drawing and categorizing their favorites, artists choose their favorites to carve into foam which will be used to create a colorful printed collection of insects

Time to print!   We used  fine quality paper and mixed speedball ink to roll over  each of our carved bug templates.

When our work was dry we added legs and antennae with a thin black pen and signed our name.
