Muralists Need Artist Kits!

My students need artist kits so they are supplied with their sketching materials for our collaborative mural design process.

My Students

My students are passionate learners who know how to advocate for themselves. The students who will benefit from this project have chosen to pursue their interest in art.

My students and I want to be able to do more hands-on activities, especially going outside to make observations of artistic inspiration around us.

Your donations will help enrich our project-based school to extend learning beyond the classroom walls. I want my students to be able to engage in their community and work to send positive messages in a public space.

My Project

We are trying something new at our school in which students participate in an "intercession." For one week of the school year, teachers are leading activities that are aligned with our passions and values. These materials will be provided to students who are participating in a Mural Painting intercession. We are going to get out and visit murals in the area and learn about the symbolism and purpose of murals. Students will sketch sources of inspiration in the murals we witness.

We will then collaboratively design a public mural near our school to send positive messaging and beautify our neighborhood.

Students will use their sketchbooks and pens in their "artist kits" to sketch out ideas they have to include in our mural, and be able to keep a reflection of the design and their own learning process.
