After the bird was finished, I wondered about creating the background. We added clouds and foliage with white and green post-it notes, then my super TA artist quickly drew the buildings in blue dry erase marker.
The final product:
My students and I have discovered if you're involved in the creating of post-it note art windows in the library, you tend to be super critical of the creation. The students who visit the library and pass by, however, are not critical at all! They love seeing the creations come together and are always complimentary about the final product. All in all...it's a good thing.
