Community Serenity Art Garden Mural

My students need paint, brushes, and gesso for this project. I have ordered class packs to keep this at the lowest cost possible.

My Students

Our students are always "Ready to learn!" We have recently become a STEAM school and I am really excited about putting the ART into STEM! The students will truly benefit from this experience.

Our students are 65-75% free and reduced lunch and kudos to all of our parents, staff , community, and of course our students our school just earned an A as our lowest quartile went up last year in almost all areas and made HUGE learning gains!

The trick now is to continue to do it again and again by offering these enriching activities and arts infused experiences.

My Project

Our students will be experiencing a collaborative project where we research, design, and paint a community mural on our school campus. Students will use the gesso to prime wood boards on the campus grounds. We will then use the paint for the murals along with the brushes. We will be working with partners such as parents and community partners that have agreed to collaborate from the local museum and galleries. Volunteer hours from the High school students are also available and I have several signed up already. This can be an enriching and exciting opportunity for all those involved!

Your donation can make a huge difference by helping this [project come to fruition.

Help make community mural come to life and give this opportunity to some very deserving students!
