Artistic Collaborations-Creating a Mural

Last year AESA was asked to participate in UVic Education Student Association's first annual conference.  During the conference we created a collaborative patchwork mural where all education students could show off their artistic talents.  While our resulting image was of a Tom Thompson forest scene, collaborative murals can be  useful for any subject matter.  For science, why not create a mural on the human body where each student is responsible for representing and sharing information about a different organ.  For social studies, students could create a patchwork map showing their interpretation of a specific place.  Most importantly, collaborative murals can be a great way to develop a sense of community in your classroom, and even within the entire school.  

Feeling inspired?  A step by step guide to creating collaborative murals can be found on AESA's website uvicaesa.weebly.com.
