The 4th grade classes finished the project that they had started last year. After looking at the style and work of Elizabeth Murray, they composed an image made up of at least 3 personal symbols. They sketched out their ideas, made them finite with sharpie, added color with oil pastel, cut and glued onto construction paper, and we collaged all of their organic personal symbolism works of art on to one large class artwork. Just like Elizabeth Murry, our finished piece is non rectilinear, full of color and symbolism.
