Readers' Reef Mural Day 6

Art Club Session 3 finalized the mural by adding second coats to many colors in order to make them vibrant! They also added a darker brown sponge paint along the palm trees. This was added to make it look like the shade that is created from the palm tree leaves.

We also worked on Holiday Cards for some of the staff at UDAES whom we wanted to send our appreciation for all that they do for us and the school community.

Below are some pictures of the mural.
Ms. Bowman will add a few ending touches.
Final Mural pictures will be posted sometime in January.

Readers' Reef Mural Day 5

Art Club Session 2 was hard at work adding detail to the mural's sand by sponge painting a lighter color to create texture. Session 2 also painted letters of the alphabet that Ms. Bowman added to the base of the palm trees to go with the reading theme. Art Club Members worked near the sand underneath a warm red light. They really felt like they were on the beach!!

Below are some photographs of the progress.

Almost done!! Great Job Art Club Session 2! Helpers I couldn't do it without you, thank you!

Reader's Reef Mural Day 4

Art Club Session 1 met and continued to work on the mural. We painted over the transparent areas to make them solid bright colors. Students also began to sponge paint texture on the top layer of the sand. A reporter from The Upper Dauphin Sentinel came to visit and take pictures while we worked on the mural. A few students got interviewed too! The article should appear in The Upper Dauphin Sentinel sometime in January. I will keep you posted with exact dates.

Below are pictures of the progress we made.

Art Club also began working on the backdrop for the annual "UDA's Got Talent" Talent Show. Here are some photos of the students hard at work.
