4th Grade New York State Wildlife Mural


 

The fourth grade students at Enders Road Elementary School learned about New York State as part of their grade level classroom curriculum. The images in these large paintings are the result of an interdisciplinary project utilizing the resources of the school library (Mrs. Machan), their individual teachers, and the art room (Mrs. O’Brien & Ms. Sweeney).  In this project, each student was assigned a different wildlife animal indigenous to New York State to research and write a report about. The students then created drawings of their respective New York State animals in the art room, and learned to use watercolor paints to add color to their images. In conjunction with this project they studied the work of the French/American artist, John James Audubon.  From these paintings a large grade-wide mural was created on huge sheets of pre-primed canvas using acrylic paint. The mural consists of a landscape representing the various regions of New York State. The mural shows N.Y. State wildlife grouped and displayed by geographical region.  Once completed, the mural was mounted over the doorway leading into the fourth grade wing at Enders Road Elementary School.
