What to do:
- sharing a large sheet of paper, children
each create a painting of themselves on the paper.
How to do it:
- a mural is a picture made as a group that
depicts many parts of a theme (ie.
A river flowing through the length of the paper will help define a common
horizon for some of the children so the finished image looks like it flows)
- use heavy brown paper
(or white craft paper
on a roll) and tempera paint
- place paper on floor
approx. 2’ per child)
- divide parts of mural up by drawing a border
line to indicate each child’s working space
- establish the theme in everyone’s imagination
through story or pictures or simply talking about it!
- Everyone uses their space to create their
part of the theme
