Creating a cityscape

The first-grade classes created cityscapes as their most recent school art project. The art teacher at Biscuit's school is really creative and always seems to have nice displays in the hallways.

Last Thursday evening (a few hours before Biscuit's fever started!), all the first-grade classes put on a musical performance (pictures from that later), and parents were encouraged to roam the halls to see the work the kids did. Each class did its own project.

The kids got to choose what they wanted to add, and Biscuit's idea was a firehouse and a couple of school buses. They could only use paper, no crayons, markers, etc. And they could either cut or tear the pieces to create the mural.

Here are some pictures of what Biscuit's class created:

This is Biscuit's main part of the mural. He was a little disappointed in the firehouse.

"Mom, other than the fact that it's red, you can't even tell that it's a firehouse!" Biscuit said, clearly frustrated.

I don't think we'll have to worry about him becoming an abstract artist!
