Mrs. Marx - Garden of Beauty

Mrs. Marx's class focused on creating a beautiful flower garden for their mural. First we learned the difference between drawing symbolic flowers and realistic flowers. Each child selected a photograph of a flower and then we practiced drawing the flower by looking at the photo and drawing what we "see" instead of what we "think" the flower looks like. Then each child drew their own flower on the mural, traced it with a sharpie and added color and shading with chalk. Mrs. Sampson taught us how to blend two colors to add more depth and beauty. This is a beautiful mural and the quality of work from these 2nd graders is exceptional! Great job!
