This mural art project encourages the students to work together as a group on a common goal: painting murals in the canteen. Through the course of this project, students will develop a sense a citizenship, responsibility and community values. The criteria given to the students was to design a mural that is respectful, colorful and enjoyable for the NIS Community. The students planned and brainstormed on how these values can be communicated through their artwork. Each student made their own designs and then shared these initial designs with their group. The group then decided on the final design together, and, with Ms. Debbie’s approval, the designs were magnified to scale and the students began turning a blank wall into colorful masterpieces.
