MAYBERRY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL MURAL

We have conducted residencies at Mayberry since 2012 it was a joy for Barnsdall Arts and Beautify Earth to collaborate on a huge mural project for their campus. Sergio Cuculiza, Director of Education, for Beautify Earth and Shelah Lehrer-Graiwer, Executive Director for Barnsdall Arts, worked for months to set it up. Marcel Blanco the artist from Beautify Earth and Quan Trang, teaching artist and Program Director from BA, teamed up on this exciting venture. Marcel created and painted the mural with the meaningful assistance of the students led by Quan Trang. The students painted scenes of the neighborhood as background. The mural has inspired the whole campus community as they transform into a Communications Magnet. Barnsdall Arts will be their visual arts partner.

LOS ANGELES ARTS COMMISSION GRANT FOR PROJECT SILVER LINING

We are grateful for receiving a generous grant of $18,900 to fund Project Silver Lining for 2018-2019

PROJECT SILVER LINING

Project Silver Lining is an innovative multi-disciplinary program combining mindfulness/yoga, film analysis, and the visual arts. The goals of the program are to enable students to access their own voices, broaden their perspectives, and inspire them to envision their future through self-reflection. Concepts of trust and respect, personal development, and social justice are at the core of this school-based program. "In the past year and a half working with this organization, they have shown exemplary curricular programs that have demonstrated effective practices in the areas of art, mural -making, and mindfulness. This year my school launched Project Silver lining with much success. Highland Park students were highly engaged in Project Silver Lining where they learned how to create their own films. design their own art piece and practiced mindfulness techniques. All of these skills the students are presently using across our curriculum."
