OUTREACH :: MURAL ARTS PROGRAM
Craft Alliance has collaborated with area schools in mural residencies since the inception of the Mural Arts Program in 1995. Teaching artists work with students over several months culminating in a public work that is installed permanently within the halls of their school. Students demonstrate their confidence and ability to inform and fulfill a cohesive visual statement while applying sophisticated studio art processes. Through the creative process, students experience writing, art and mathematics while developing problem-solving and cooperation skills.

Throughout the residencies, students find ways to employ creative and classical educational strategies that connect their work to a larger context outside of their scholastic environment. Their work becomes part of a larger conversation that speaks about the stewardship of a school, its ability to anchor a neighborhood, and enrich the lives of those around it.
