What is it to be an outsider?
This was the question we asked Fifth Grade students at Summit Drive Elementary School. We tasked these children to read, illustrate and paint murals of several stories about racial, gender, financial and political/social inequality.
What you see on this page is entirely student driven work. They were lead through several drawing exercises from observation, taught painting techniques, color theory, composition, critique and of course mural painting!
BIG THANKS to TD Center for Arts Integration, Metropolitan Arts Council, SmartArts, Summit Elementary (for having me) and the amazing teachers and students of this awesome school.
