As may of you know, last year I had the honor of painting a giant mural in the kitchen in Buckman Elementary school. Well, lucky for me they loved it and asked me to come back for more! I recently finished my 2nd mural in the hallway across from the 1st grade classrooms. Anne Miles, one of the 1st grade teachers (and an amazing art supporter!!), asked me to come up with something that combined the K-2 science curriculum--trees, habitats, and insects. For this section, I did a Doug Fir forest with local Oregon plants and animals.
Some of you may have already seen photos on facebook, but for those of you who haven't, I want to share (and fyi, if you or anyone you know wants a mural in their school, business, bedroom, or anywhere else I do that! :) ).
The whole thing is about 12.5' x 30', and goes around a drinking fountain and bulletin boards:
It's not Oregon without a slug! Indigo got to add the Night train Centipede on the rock :)
