Student Art from Oregon

Last week I received this email:
“Attached is a photo of the O’Keeffe Poppy Mural we made for our school’s auction this year. It was completed by Ms. Kenney’s 3rd and 4th graders at Westridge Elementary in Lake Oswego, OR. We used acrylic paint on canvas paper and then attached them to a large 30x40 canvas. The original sold quickly at the auction and raised a lot of money for our PTSO. We also sold reproductions that were scanned prior and printed on a smaller canvas. Thanks so much for the download and guidance!  — Jennifer Pahl”
Thanks so much Jennifer for sharing your school’s work, which got incredible results with acrylic paint and canvas paper. I have to try that combo myself . . . very soon!

This is so beautiful!!! I would like to try this with my class, too. Any ideas how they attached the canvas paper to the canvas?

Jennifer, can you answer this? My guess is maybe watered down white glue, like I use with dry wax paper technique.

Very cool! That is the town next to mine, who's schools are struggling under state budget cuts, so hopefully that will help out a little bit. :) It's beautiful!
