Le jardin des quatre saisons:

While reading the traditional Japanese tale “Urashima”, the students of grades 2 and 3 discovered the marvelous garden of the four seasons hidden in the Dragon King’s palace. The Dragon King is the father of the princess in love with Urashima. The children created these lovely works by using collage and painting. They worked in groups according to seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter to create the garden of the 4 seasons. In each composition, the color tones and decorations were made with collage from magazines. Finally, the children designed bridges crossing the garden of the four seasons and the river in the middle.
