What makes you want to SCREAM?  In October Mrs Larsen'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.

Thank you 5th grade for sharing with everyone.
