In this project, students designed an image based upon character traits, and they used stencils and spray paint to make their images come to life. The works are filled with unique symbols, personal histories, and most importantly, self-identification.
The North Coast Arts Integration Project (artsintegration.net) is a four year federal grant for eight local schools to increase engagement and understanding of core content through arts integration. Project coordinator Bill Funkhouser stated, “We are seeing consistent gains in student achievement and interest as the core curriculum is taught in combination with visual and performing arts.”
