May 12th- STEAM

Today we explored different ways that illustrators make art. We have been reading stories by Leo Lionni and noticed that he makes his art by stamping different materials. We also read a story illustrated by Kevin McCloskey and he used paper bags for his illustrations. We thought it would be fun to combine the two techniques!  First, we collected items from nature and then we stamped them on brown paper bags. Check out our process!
