This was one of my projects on the staff workday before Spring Break. One of my schools has a fish tank in the hallway near the office. It had a generic underwater background and I just didn't think that would do. I asked if I could paint a new background and I let some of the students vote on the theme. "Outer Space" was the winner!
The measurements were about 2 feet by 4 feet. I had to cut and tape paper to get the right size and then painted mostly with acrylic paint. I learned how to use the laminator and we secured it to the back. Now we just need to paint the base!
