Eighth grade students from two diverse schools in the Lower Merion School District will collaborate on a yearlong service learning project through Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program. Students will work collaboratively to explore social issues effecting Philadelphia’s neighborhoods, engage in a mural painting project, and debrief through a panel discussion with community leaders and artists. Through engagement in meaningful social action and collaboration, students will make long lasting positive contributions that address community issues and connect their learning to the real world.
