Students at Great Oak Academy worked with the Shenandoah Valley Art Mobile to design, create, and paint a HUGE mural representing their stories and belonging to the Great Oak Community.
Students learned about the history of large-scale artwork and the process of creating big paintings on walls. The middle schoolers were shown how to take a sketch, create a grid, and enlarge the design onto the wall. Then the students helped design and paint a mural of their very own!
Each student was then given an individual circle in which to create a personal work of creative expression. The circle artwork was created on separate paper, so that at the end of the year students can take their work home and next year the new students will have the chance to create art to display in their hallway.
