    Step 1: Sketch and Approval
    Mr. Russell completed a sketch - but if we show that here it will ruin the surprise!
    Mr. Hill had to say it was ok - it's his wall after all!
    head scratch
    Step 2:  Grid and Drawing
    20 feet long and 8 feet high - it will be hard to miss!

    Step 3: Train the 5th graders to mural paint!
