Welcome to
Picture It! 2013

Project Dates:
April 1 to May 10, 2013

This project is now over.

Main Idea
Classrooms will be working with 23 other classrooms to complete 1 collaborative piece of art.

Deborah Craven has created a unique piece of artwork (suitable for a bulletin board). This artwork will be divided into several sections.

1. Each classroom will receive ONE SECTION of a piece of art and a listing of classrooms they will be collaborating with.
(Each group will have 24 classrooms)

The main image
"Mondrian With A Twist"
has been divided into 24 pieces....

2. Guided by the teacher, each student will color ONE SECTION of the drawing on a piece of paper. (please use CRAYONS!) -- a PDF template will be provided!!!
The final collection of artwork will be perfect for a bulletin board!

Since we are celebrating Mondrian --
please only use BLUE, RED, BLACK, YELLOW crayons! Thank you!

3. From a provided list, the teacher will mail out the completed sections of art to every classroom on that list (one section per classroom!)
(Teachers are responsible for all postage costs)

4. The class will also include a completed template to share a bit about their classroom.

5. Each classroom will receive artwork "sections" from the other classrooms on the list.

6. Once the "sections" have been received, the classroom will piece the parts together to create ONE collaborative piece of artwork. (sample of another tiled mural project)

Teachers will receive a complete packet of all sections, as a backup, in case a section does not get sent to you!

7. Teachers & class are encouraged to use any or all resource ideas.

You also might wish to take pictures throughout the project and add them to your own wiki, blog, website, etc!!

8. If you wish to collaborate with another class -- via skype, email, phone, etc....please join our group at Edmodo ( group ) or follow us on facebook at

9. Your sections need to be mailed to the other participating
classrooms BY May 7, 2013.
