Notes from Paula:

This was a based upon a saying I found in a teacher supply catalog, “Today is a Great Day to Learn Something New!”

I worked a collage effect working with multi layers of poster paper, hand cut lettering, hand cut math symbols, punctuation marks, geometric shapes, and other objects that symbolize educational concepts.

For the border I cut 15-20′ strips of 6″ wide bulletin board paper and stapled it to the board in a “ruffling/pleating” effect.

This board is 2, 10′ boards side by side, so it is quite large.

It looks really impressive as you walk into the building.
