YOUTH MURAL CLUB
PUBLIC ART & EDUCATION PROGRAM ALBUQUERQUE, NM 2016-20
The Harwood Art Center's Youth Mural team pairs a teaching artist with students at Garfield and Hayes Middle Schools to create public murals for their campuses and for public venues across the city. Students are trained in leadership and team building with a special focus on preparing 8th grade students for high school. Students spend 10 weeks on each mural, meeting twice weekly after school to foster focus, conceptual development, visual communication and teamwork. As a teaching artist with the mural club, we produced 12 murals for 6 public venues.
