The second grade class did self portraits as well using a monoprinting technique. The students painted an image using tempra onto foil and then printed it on paper. In the future I would require that students “tape-off” an area on their foil that is lesser than or equal to the size of their paper. Also, have lots of sponges (for cleaning the foil, and any spills) and q-tips (for removing small areas, designs, etc.) handy.
