Ms. McCoy - A Community of Caring

Ms. McCoy's class created a mural that was inspired by Russian Architecture. The children each created vertical geometric buildings and then added onion tops and curvy lines on top of the buildings. The children added detail and created windows and doorways with curved lines. After completed their buildings they shaded the buildings using at least 2 different colors of chalk. This mural complements the theme for the 2nd grade program and is entitled: "Creating a community of caring." This is a nice extension of one of our earlier projects where we drew Southwest Missions. This year in 2nd grade art we have been learning the difference between organic lines and geometric lines. This project is perfect for reinforcing that concept. Beautiful work 2nd graders!
