Whittier Elementary students illustrate map of their ‘hood

Posted by Danielle Anthony-Goodwin on June 4th, 2014

il_570xN_605467051_bqonThe talented 4th grade students at Whittier Elementary illustrated a beautiful map of their neighborhood and are now offering prints for locals to purchase.

The project was originally put together as an item to be sold at the Whittier Elementary PTA Auction and now due to local demand smaller 11″ x 14″ reprints are being offered for sale on Etsy.

The creation of the map was a collaboration between students, teachers and the school community. Each student, and their teachers Ms. Shoop and Ms. Kahana, were given a reference photo of a Whittier building or landmark that they turned into a creative free hand drawing in pencil on white paper.

Designer Misha ZadehMisha then compiled and scanned the drawings, creating the map layout and adding the final touch of digital color.

Check out the description of the map as featured on Etsy below:

This charming and colorful map of the neighborhood surrounding Whittier Elementary features the businesses and landmarks we know and love, all drawn by the talented artists of Ms. Shoop’s 2013 – 2014 4th grade class. From a whimsical take on The Fat Hen to a masterful rendition of the Wild Mountain Cafe, this map is so loaded with details you could stare at it for hours. The kids had a great time drawing the elements of this map, and they’re even more excited about it now that it’s all been pulled together into a vibrant, archival Giclée print.

The prints can be purchased for $25, with $10 from each print going to benefit the 2014/2015 Fifth Grade overnight trip to Nature Bridge.

    I bought this beautiful print of our Ballard neighborhood–it has Chuck’s, Honore, Fat Hen, the local market, Kirke Park and of course our beloved elementary school. What a great, personal art piece if you live in Ballard. The art sketched by local elementary students is quite good, and wonderful and the professional colorization done by Misha Graham of Turquoise Creative is FANTASTIC. I just love this reprint!!
