Ruby Tuesday



This is the outside mural from P.S. 193 in Whitestone, Queens (an elementary school). It depicts all the things the kids are studying.

I post it here for our Ruby Tuesday meme.

I took these shots in the late afternoon with the shadows playing at the right. But there was plenty of RED (I love the RED fence in the bottom picture) to photograph!









Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Please go visit other participants and, of course, sign Mr. Linky and leave a comment. Thanks a lot!

I really like it that kids paint murals on boring walls outside their schools. This is a very nice one!

Rinkly Rimes said...

here's certainly red but there's a rainbow too!

Diane AZ said...

So fanciful, I love the little turtle and of course the red fence. Nice find!

Jane said...

Nice artwork, thanks for sharing:)

Ellie said...

The shadows give a "being on the Moon" idea in the scene. Lovely place. It is always nice when they give an extra touch to a space. Very bright and inspiring! My mom /Nadine, Bulgaria/ has some reds on street facades too this week.

Peggy said...

Great scope for our imaginations, eh!

nonizamboni said...

These are gorgeous murals. I really like their impressive size from your photos and how the fences frame them--so much to see. Thanks, Mary!

Leora said...

I have murals in my post today, too! Great colors - looks like the kids are getting a lot of science in their curriculum.

Mojo said...

Way cool! I know someone who'll love this.

Robin said...

I love this bright colorful mural, you can't help but smile walking by, and what an encouragement to learning too.

SandyCarlson said...

Mojo sent me! And am I glad he did. These are wonderful.

Jim said...

Those murals are nice! Are you sure the kids did them? Well, you really didn't say they did.

And I'm not too witchy but am in the spirit just a little. My characters probably are more Fall than Halloween.

Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

School murals are wonderful, but I agree that the RED fence is a key element in its wonderfulness. Come see the reddest Japanese maples I have ever seen.

Ann said...

beautiful mural. did they have a professional artist paint it. Last year, my church went to a local school and did a mural together with lots of jobs.
