Once the students finished researching and drawing a variety of native crops and migratory species of butterflies that live in Wisconsin, we (Gabi and Jenie) got together to collage them together into a final composition.
- creating a design that reflected our collaborative effort and unified our styles in one beautiful composition
- creating a plan that made good use of the space and was practical for our supplies budget and time frame. We estimated 4 painting days and $800 for the mural supplies. You can see the breakdown of our supplies here.
Here is the final mock-up of our mural. Now we were ready to get supplies and start painting.
