Monoprinting lesson plan: KS3 and KS4 art

‘This is a lesson plan that I have used many times at KS4 (although it can also work well with KS3 classes). It is very useful for creating lots of quick ideas and injecting pace into lessons. I have also found it is a good way to avoid students being too ‘precious’ with their work.’

Art teacher Lizzie Allen has written a lesson plan for you to use with your KS4 Art students, introducing them to the techniques needed to record observations using monoprinting.

Getting students to start with short ‘timed monoprints’, Lizzie’s lesson aims to free up students’ observational drawings through experimentation. Students then move on to creating more detailed monoprints, using different tools and marks, whilst creating their own ‘criteria for success’.

P.S. The interactive monoprinting activity included in the free presentation allows students to explore and practise skills before applying them in their practical work.
