Charles Burchfield's Day Job: 3rd Grade

Third Grade  learned about artist, Charles Burchfield.  He lived and worked in our very own Buffalo, NY.  After looking at his work, we also talked about his day job: a wallpaper designer!  His designs were inspired by nature just like his work.  Third grade then stamped their own patterns and designs to create a nature inspired “wallpaper sample”.  I was at the Burchfield Penney Art gallery by Buffalo State a few days ago and saw some wallpaper design rolls in his studio recreation!  Where's a camera when you need one?
