What makes you want to SCREAM? This month Miss Murdock's class at Art City Elementary, Springville, wrote about what makes them want to scream. The students studied The Scream by Edvard Munch and used similar colors, lines and movement to create their own watercolors. Using a Digital camera their picture was taken, while re-creating that famous scream face. Their pictures were printed then cut out and glued onto their watercolor painting. Students then wrote about what makes them scream and published their writing in the school computer lab. Students were able to include photography, water coloring and writing as well as using their computer and typewriting skills. These works of art are displayed outside McKell Murdock's third-grade classroom and making all of us at Art City wonder what we would "scream" about.
