4th Grade Tropical Rainforest Mural


Collaborative painting and relief sculpture by Ms. Borowski's fourth grade class. Students first painted the mural using tempera paint, then added details on top using acrylic paint.

The Bird of Paradise sculpture was made using bottle and marker caps, old wooden rulers and one large sheet of cardboard saved from a new piece of equipment bought for the art room this year. The students first painted the bird, then attached the other items using hot glue. Beautiful!

This is wonderful! How long did it take you to collect all the bottlecaps?
