Mural - Second Grade Painting with Scissors

Wow.  Katie Morris is a prolific bulletin board creator.  She does it the smartest way by having kids create it as one giant work of art.  Nice, Katie!

Winter Mural

This mural was created by Kathy's students over at the "Gallery 2404" blog.  It was hung with other student murals as decor for the school's winter program.

Hmmm..........I need to rename this blog.  I created it a few months ago as a place for me to park ideas for my own use.  Since I have to do almost every bulletin board in the school, I run out of ideas quickly, so looking at other folks's boards is helpful. 

"Bulletin Boards to Remember" really means, "Jan...You Can Use This Idea Later."  I think other people are starting to find it now, and so I'll try to make it a little more attractive to others. 

These are 99% about art, so I need a snazzy art name for this.  Suggestions?
