    Tara, we painted the plywood boards in the classroom, then the maintenance guy put them up outside the gate. We have painted 2 x 4s to make a frame, I just need to call and set a date with maintenance guy.

    The third one that looks like it's on the street, did you work on it there or move it into place after it was done?

    The first three are totally designed by students - the first was designed by one student; the second was a collaboration of three students, then drawn by the student who designed #1; third mural was a collaboration of all my students that year (the idea came from one student, and each individual student added their own best animal or vehicle or building).

#4 is the only one I designed - and most of the fish and sea creatures were made by students. I glued them on boards, then used small tile to create the backgrounds. Students made their own and took them home; I made ten (with students doing some of the background) and then my classes worked on putting the panels up on the wall, as well as adding the border. I did all the grouting, during lunch periods, with the grout left over from my morning classes.
