More butterflies June 24, 2010

Here are the updated butterfly prints from the second graders.  They each chose one of their yarn prints, cut it out, and drew the life cycle of the butterfly around it.  The students have been studying life cycles and raising butterflies in their classroom, so this part was too easy for them!  They also chose one print and colored in the butterfly.  One of the key characteristics they noted about butterflies are how colorful they are, and printmaking only allows for one ink color.  Hand coloring the prints was an easy way to make their symmetrical prints more interesting.
