For the first time ever, we have gathered a group of talented 7th and 8th-grade students to form a Murals class. The students have adorable, trendy, meaningful ideas that will add color to our empty white/beige school walls! These students are building their confidence level in art and learning about teamwork. The students have learned about the difference between graffiti, street art, murals and have been excited to leave a permanent mark before they graduate and move on to High School.
For many years the walls within the our campus have been empty. Through planning, sketching, and painting these large-scale, permanent murals the students have been feeling empowered and surprised with their contribution to the school and community.
As our ideas and confidence grow, we would need the supplies to create more murals in the spaces that have been untouched.
In some cases, we are running out of paint before the mural is completed. The materials needed for the murals are often heavy-duty, weatherproof paint. The walls that we have painted on have been large areas, which often need multiple coats of paint.
