A Look At: Inventions in Art

Monday was the last of the Inventions In Art series and the last of my preschool classes until September. I just wanted to share some pictures.

This one was my favorite class. We read some fantastic books about inventing and one of the biggest dreamers of all...Leonardo Da Vinci! Then we created "blueprints" of our own inventions using a super simple printmaking technique called the Monoprint. There were some fantastic ideas! We certainly have some creative little inventors at Monkey See, Monkey Do!
