“Our School” Putnam Avenue Upper School, School–Wide Mural 

Funded from a STARS Residency grant from the Mass Cultural Council, CCC collaborated with the art teacher at PAUS to create a school-wide (grades 6-8) mural influenced by the 5 core values passion, perseverance, ownership and pride and how they can be represented in our bodies through poses. Inspired by artists Diego Riveria and Keith Harring students embodied their own poses to draw figures, fill them in with abstract designs and paste them to the painted background. They learned about color-mixing, scale, painting techniques, figure drawing, using new materials. The mural is approximately 8′ x 14′ and will be moving with the school to their new location in 2015.
