Jamestown Elementary: Welcome Back Mural!


As always, this year on the first day of school, we began with an all school project that every grade level participated in. We created a mural of a tree where each student contributed their own uniquely patterned leaf to the branches. We reviewed the art elements in our designs focusing on: line, color (warm and cool), shape, space, pattern, and value.

Our theme as a staff this year is: Jamestown Elementary: "Reaching our unique growth potential." 
As a tree grows, we grow each day, and we are all unique (just like our leaves). Our goal is to do our best and to reach our unique growth potential.

Learning Goals: I can...
- Explain what a mural is
- Use art to create a welcoming environment
- Collaborate with other students on a group project
-Use the art elements effectively in my artwork
