In this lesson we learned about the tale of the Mexican folk art Alebrijes. Once we understood what they were, we created our own alebrije-type monsters to be put into a collaborative book for others to create their own unique monsters!
First, we filled out an ideation worksheet that had markings every 1-inch horizontally in 3 separate boxes. This was to be filled out individually in each box to have a unique kind of head, body, and legs.
Then we took the same shape styrofoam plate cuts and transfered our images to each corresponding feature using ballpoint pens.
Then we used a printmaking process of ink to transfer our images to a clean piece of paper.
Once those were dried, we put another layer of ink on to bring the figure out from the background.
