Magnificent Clay Murals
Kirker, Sara Schmickle
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v107 n2 p26-27 Oct 2007
Each August, third grade artists at Apple Glen Elementary in Bentonville, Arkansas, start the school year planning, creating, and exhibiting a clay relief mural. These mural projects have helped students to acquire not only art knowledge and techniques, but an even more important kind of knowledge: what it means to plan and successfully complete a project through working together. Group interaction while creating art, helps build students' self-esteem and eliminates isolation. In this article, the author describes how the students created their colorful murals.
