Printmaking Snowmen

2nd graders drew their snowmen with pencil on scrap paper. Then they taped the paper over foam, traced their drawings with pencil, removed scrap paper and traced their drawing one more time with pencil. Next, they used white tempera paint and painted their foam using a brayer. We pressed our artworks in the center of a light blue paper (they need help centering) and lastly we added snowflake prints using stamps student made! I have also done this with adaptive art class, but we just drew our snowmen right into the foam. I also had circles for them to trace, they turned out nice!
