Project Description

Program Description
Students will develop a consciousness about civic art by discussing, deciding upon, and creating a collaborative mural. They will learn to choose the style, symbols, and materials most appropriate to express their culture. While working on the mural together, we will explore elements of art like composition and color, as well as how to integrate disparate parts and/or materials.

Final Product
The final project will be a collaborative mural, with points of personal expressions, that communicates the collective identity of the group.
