paint this portable

By: Barbara Uskovich

 

Students are encouraged to share their artistic ability not only in the classroom, but outside the building's walls.  The students felt that the science/garden portable needed updating to match the beauty of their beloved garden.  The students devised a plan to enhance the portable.  They, easily, solicited teachers and parents in their endeavour.  First and third graders came together to discuss the beautification of the portable.  A list of the visitors in the garden was written and each student took an assignment.  With a plan set, an afternoon set aside, creativity flowing-the paint began to fly!

We had the help of a parent and local artist to burn the wood after the pencil sketches were drawn.  We were pleasantly surprised when Mr. Painter stopped by to share his wisdom and help.

Over the weekend Mr. Painter (outdoor lab instructor), Mr. Rust (teacher's husband), and Mr. Uskovich (parent/teacher's husband) volunteered to finalize the beautification of the science portable.

(Doesn't it look just like Mr. Painter?)

We feel the children's plan to be perfect.

Our garden was instantly more beautiful!
