Replica of "The Scream"

Our students recently helped complete a mural version of Edvard Munch's famous Scream painting. We used the Portfolio brand oil crayons as suggested in the directions and we couldn't be more pleased with the final outcome. It was a wonderful addition to our Harvest Concert and it now has a special space in the gallery/hallway between the art and music classroom.

If you are interested, Kathy Barbro of Art Projects for Kids blog has many other fine murals download and print for just a small fee. I printed on heavy cardstock and glued our mural with tacky PVC glue. We painted the border with a metalic gold acrylic, for the museum framed look.

I don't know for sure which mural we'll do next, but I am sure we will do another one or two before end of the school year! Perhaps we will try her new Christmas Nativity and then do the Seurat's Sunday afternoon one this spring.
