TPS –What is the story about?
TPS – Why was the Golden Gate Bridge
made?
TPS –Where was the Golden Gate Bridge
made? (It is still there today)
TPS – What colors did most people think
the Golden Gate Bridge should be painted?
TPS – What is the fancy name for the color
of the Golden Gate Bridge?
TPS -How do you think the illustrator,
Tucker Nichols, made the art for This
Bridge Will Not Be Gray?
Tucker Nichols used lots of cut paper

We are going to make a collage of the
Golden Gate Bridge!
1 – Draw a curvy line in pencil
2 – Draw a straight, horizontal, line in
pencil
3 – Draw a slightly curvy, horizontal,
line in pencil
4 – Color the bottom part with blue oil
pastel. This will the bay water.
5 – Smear the blue by coloring over it
with white oil pastel. This will make
the water look more realistic.
6 – Pick a dark or light green. Color the
triangle with green you pick. This will
be one side of the bay.
7 – Use the other shade of green to
color the other side of the bay.
8 – Draw and color some white, fluffy,
clouds in the sky with the white oil
pastel.
9 – use the green oil pastels to create
texture on the land (I made lines; you
can make any simple shape you like)
10 – Hand out long, pre-cut, orange
paper strips to students
11 – Place strips on your paper like
this; DO NOT glue yet!
12 – Mark these places on the strips in
pencil. Note one set is higher than the
other!
13 – Cut the strips and glue them in place.
Note – it is easier to put the glue on the
blue paper and then stick on the st...
14 – Cut 4 small strips and glue them
on (you might have to trim them to
make them fit)
15 – Add another 4 small strips and 1
large strip for the driving part of the
bridge
16 – Cut one long strip in ½, hot-dog
style. Glue the 2 skinny pieces down
diagonally
17 – Cut another long piece in ½ hot
dog style. Glue the 2 skinny pieces
down diagonally
18 – Use scratch paper and/or crayons
to add “extras” to make the artwork
your own!
