Community Friendship Fence Mural
Gurny, Helen Graham
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v108 n4 p38-39 Dec 2008
The author had just begun Ann Johnson's "Friendship Fence" lesson from the February 2007 issue of "SchoolArts" with her third graders. In this lesson, students created self-portraits on individual fence pickets that were then combined to make a fence. In this article, the author describes how this idea was applied to the wall of P.S. 59 Community School in Bronx, New York, and how the community got involved in the process.
