  • Monogram Art

    Campbellsville Middle School students in Angela Brasser's art classes created monogram designs using their initials. They carved their monograms onto "Soft Kut" printing blocks, then inked their block and printed their image onto paper by pressing the paper onto the block. This technique, called relief printing, was completed as a collaborative project with language arts classes as students made stationery with their monogram on the paper. They will use their monogrammed papers for written projects in language arts classes.
