"We Are Here" MS 136 Community Mural

MS 136: We Are Here: Project Goals
Our goals for this project are based on the idea of connecting students to their community through a focus on public art and the building of language to communicate their personal reflections. Artistically, the students will work together to make a collaborative mural on the side of their school, engaging team building skills and communication. They will learn the process of creating a public work of art from brainstorming to organization, from process to finalization.

The students will be building work for their English Language Arts Portfolio as they write poetry and develop a spoken word performance centered around a greater understanding of their community gained through the mural painting. They will be encouraged to communicate about this place they call home in a poetic and creative way.
