My first and second graders are having so much fun making their large paintings, I had to share them with you. We are in the process of making 36 new paintings for the new Helen DeVos Children's hospital.
My students came up with ideas for paintings of things that make them happy. Then we used our document camera and projector to enlarge the 8.5x11 inch drawings on to large sheets of paper. Then they choose a team to help them paint their design. Each class was responsible for making 6 paintings.
