Community Mural with Second Grade
Lydia Stewart, Visual Art Specialist
The second graders at GreenWood Charter had an expedition where they painted a mural along the Ogden River Trail.
To prepare, they took a close look at the artist James Rizzi and created a rough draft of the mural on paper, which was posted in the school. They used the paper mural as a template for the design of their final product
