3rd Grade - Blown Ink Monsters
A perennial favorite, blown ink monsters have become a staple in third grade. First, we look at a few examples from artist Stefan G. Bucher on YouTube. Then, I spritz a little ink on the middle of a piece of paper and the third graders blow it around with a straw. Their job is to then use the squiggles and random lines from the blown ink to include in a monster of their own. We finish it with color and background and the result is artwork that is always unique and a lot of fun.
