Fifth Grade is Designing a Mural

All of 5th Grade is designing a painted mural for the playground and garden area of Fox. Students are working in groups to make decisions about small areas of wall so that our finished artwork will resemble a collaborative patchwork quilt. Students are including images that represent our school, nature and community. I will update the post as we move into implementing the design outside.

Students looked at murals from the Mujeres Muralistas Movement of the 1970’s in San Francisco and discussed what images the artists selected for that community and why. I can’t wait to see how our final mural unfolds!
