Community Murals Reinforce Classroom Learning

SHARP’s murals provide children with the opportunity to express themselves through art. Each mural starts with research about a particular topic. Students then write about what they have learned and further express it through the visual arts. The students collaborate as a team to create a large-scale mural that later is often displayed in the community. Each mural is a beautiful, visual exploration of a specific subject as seen through the eyes of our children.

Artist Sally Duback has guided SHARP students to transform their art into finished mosaics. Seventeen murals have been installed throughout Milwaukee — at General Mitchell International Airport, Discovery World, Miller Park and many other locations.

The SHARP Literacy program not only has the needed content, but also fun ways of approaching these concepts!
