Did you enjoy this project? We did enjoy working on this project. Students had fun creating individual parts of a larger artwork. One student drew the image in black and white using a combination of his and other student’s preliminary drawings of their interpretation of the American Revolution.

About: This artwork is about the essential items and symbols of the American Revolution. When the first colonies were formed, Americans needed to build houses and grow crops while also creating a flag to represent their new land.
