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. Twenty-seven mural projects have been installed throughout Milwaukee — at General Mitchell International Airport, Discovery World, Miller Park and many other locations.
