Celebrating Dr. Suess’ Birthday with a Mural!


As part of Conant’s Read Across America celebration this year, some 6th grade students created an awesome mural installation on the library windows.  

Everyone at Conant is so blown away by the great work, so we’ve decided to to leave it up until next years Read Across America celebration.


This collaboration was possible, thanks to my full time schedule at Conant!  Enjoy the in-process photos below, and thanks to all the 6th graders that gave their time (recess time included) to create this amazing work of art!

Before painting, students drew their design using watercolor oil pastels
Reference images were printed to help with the design process
Each window was painted by a pair of 6th graders
The finished murals with the amazing artists!

  1. What a great idea! Everyone benefits! The students, the library, people who view it daily… A real win-win. Excellent job by those student artists!
