I have been teaching a Service Learning in the Arts class for Winter Intersession. Our community project was to beautify the Oxford Elementary School cafeteria. Here is the before and below are some progress shots.
The murals or Walls that Teach were actually 4' x 6' panels. It is hard to paint on concrete blocks. The kids chose life cycles as the subject. The second graders painted the outside blocks and my students painted the cycles of plants, water, and animals.
Here are all the kids with my students and the teachers.
I did the welcome sign and the penguin is the school mascot.
A more intellectually stimulating and aesthetically pleasing environment I must say!
