Through a 4 week mural curriculum, Art Feeds educators helped develop the makings of a beautiful mural designed by the little artists that make up Fairview Elementary. During week one, we created a storytelling web with every student and discussed Community Art. The following week, we discussed our theme and color scheme. (Fairview chose Learning and Growing and a pastel color scheme). Week three involved drawing the images they actually wanted to see displayed on their mural. Finally, we created Paintbrush Buddies together to make a souvenir from the experience.
Our mural reveal was such a hit! Our generous sponsors the KD and ML Steadley Trust made this process possible and we loved that we could honor them at the event. The students cheered and each got an up-close look at the mural before heading back to class.View More Murals
