“My primary purpose as an art educator is to facilitate connections between students and our visual culture. Because each student has varying abilities, interest levels and learning styles, our art exercises must be both engaging and relevant. Mural painting is a popular way to coordinate the elements of art, design and visual themes from art history with students of all ages. The classroom provides an opportunity to create an atmosphere of trust, creativity, scholarship and enthusiasm for the visual arts.”
