Karen Webster came in to 5th and 6th class to talk about doing a mural to promote recycling. Karen came in every Friday for a couple of weeks to get us to draw pictures that would go in the mural. Each week we did something different. Week 1 we drew on tracing paper using charcoal, week 2 we drew pictures using special pens and then we used watercolors to colour the pictures in. During mid-term break Karen brought all our drawings to her workshop and enlarged them on to three big boards. She came back 2 weeks after mid-term and we started painting.
5th class went down in groups to the hall first and started doing the backgrounds of 2 of the boards. After a while sixth class started to go down in groups. They mainly concentrated on one board. We all had to make a recycling promise. We are all really enjoying doing this mural.
