This one side of the mural that my students have been working on this year. This side is more organic and Dr. Suess inspired. The opposite side of the wall is more rigid with sharp edges.


Created by 6th 7th 8th graders in 2013-14



Students created these cityscapes by sketching two layers of neighborhood housing and a background layer of downtown buildings. Then students used markers and water -and- watercolor paint to fill in the buildings and sky. Finally students outlined the buildings and details with markers.

this example is 5th grade from 2011

great for 4th 5th 6th 7th
