These murals were created with 7th Grade ELA at Greenville Middle Academy.
We focused our time together on Haiku’s. Since Haiku’s are about nature, we wrote poems about the 5 regions of South Carolina. Each student was responsible for writing their own poem, we critiqued them and chose the poem with the strongest visual elements. Then we worked together to illustrate them. The students took great care in developing these images and color palettes to match.
After the designs were completed, the students were lead through the transfer and process of completing large scale murals.
