The Finished Auction Project

Twelve of Twelve, all squished on the canvas!


"Mrs. Figel's Second Grade Tall Tale Garden"
Inspired by the second grade literature curriculum of Tall Tales, Fairy Tales and Folk Tales, along with their science unit of growing plants from seeds, this wild garden masterpiece showcases the budding imaginations of each of Mrs. Figel's students. Each student contributed to this mixed media wall art hanging by creating a seed pod that grows into something "wild and amazing". From a seed that grows into "a house, a cow and a chicken so that someone can have everything they need", to a diamond seed planted that grows a "real diamond", to a monster flower bud that eats the scary monster flowers. The students sketched their plants and then cut them out of quilting fabric in colors of their choosing. The plants have been arranged on a canvas painted with acrylics to create a wild growing garden landscape and the whole thing is sealed with clear acrylic medium. The edges of this 40" X 30" gallery wrapped canvas have been finished with acrylic paint so that it may be hung in your home without needing a frame.
