Preparing to Paint our Canvas
As the weeks have gone on, more and more children have expressed an interest in returning to silhouettes. In an effort to encourage dimension with the project, Brigitte and I thought it would be a good time to introduce the idea of a theater/ puppet show. We began on Monday with a discussion of using a large canvas board as a background.
Towards the end, we found our most solid idea which is a painted underwater background complete with dolphins, sharks, jellyfishes and the like. This was inspired in part by the clay sea sculptures above the Tucker door that we chat about often.
Today we took time to look at the documentation from Tucker Room’s undersea mural project. We visited it, and then scoped out our own first draft with tape on the canvas.
George: There could be the underwater vehicle!
Lochie: Maybe we should do two underwater vehicles. I want light and dark blue colors in the ocean.
Marley: Let’s put the sand here
Tomorrow we will visit Hyde Elementary’s Undersea Mural for more ideas! Check out some additional photos of the day below!
