International Academy Mural

The three International Academy art classes worked collaboratively on this peace mural during the final two weeks of class. We began by projecting the images onto the wall and drawing them out in pencil. Students from each class were put into teams for different sections of the mural. Since my middle school classes are so large, we switched off throughout the period so every student was able to help with the painting. We included the Dealey logo on one side and a quote from John Lennon that relates well to the mural on the other side. The concept is many different hands of different cultures coming together for peace. We ended with each student signing their name around the perimeter of the painting. I was very proud of my classes for working so well together and creating something so beautiful that represents the theme of our school!
