The Special Start preschoolers came to the studio today to make a very special group mural, on canvas. Last week, they each took a photograph of the dogwood tree outside their classroom. These photos were glued on first. Then, the sponge painted stencils of springtime flowers they have been noticing on walks- crocuses, grape hyacinths, daffodils, and forsythia. Finally, tissue paper was glued on for stems and leaves. This mural will be at the Morse School Art Show at Gallery 263 in a couple weeks. Now we only need to come up with a permanent home for such a beautiful work of art?
