The Importance of Values

Marcio Melo (artist) and muralists in front of finished mural "The Importance of Values"

 

"The theme for this mural was "The Importance of Values".

The students of grades 5 and 6 researched meaningful words and narrowed them down to six.

The principal, Joan Grey, suggested the word "Commitment". I suggested the word "Harmony". We both thought these were key words to a successful art project.

At the end of the project, we all gathered in front of the mural to look at it and pondered the meaning of the words. It was a true learning experience in more than one sense - visual and philosophical. Congratulations to the students of Buckingham Elementary for the great job!"
