GreenWood Charter School

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

Syracuse Arts Academy
Antelope Campus Charter School

Kristy Tubbs, Visual Arts Specialist

First grade students completed their Winter Cardinals by adding snow using white paint and glue and shaving cream, which created a 3D effect.

Lomond View Elementary School

Mendy Reese, Visual Arts Specialist

Students created patterns on teepees with watercolors and painted them using warm colors. The warm colors gave the illusion that there was a fire inside. Students also created landscapes using crayon resist, watercolors, and salt. The final step was adding the teepees to the landscapes.
