3rd Grade Guardian Angel Prints

In honor of the upcoming Feast of the Guardian Angels, the third grade students made angel prints to be displayed in church during the mass. They began by drawing their design onto a piece of thin foam using a dull ebony pencil. They made sure their lines were nice and deep so that the paint would not fill into them during the printing process. Next, they rolled black tempera paint all over their foam piece using a small foam roller until the entire piece was covered evenly. They placed a clean piece of white paper on top of the painted “printing plate” and gently rubbed the paper to transfer the design.
