Collaborative School Culture Murals
MetadataShow full item record
This classroom based study investigated the collaborative mural process with Drawing II students at Arundel High School. The research question asked: What social challenges and opportunities might students encounter while collaboratively planning a mural that reflects school culture? The research focused on both the positive and negative aspects of teenagers working together on the same piece of art. Observation notes were made regarding student behaviors, conversations, and logistics while painting. The completed murals, artist statements, pre and post survey comparative data, and teacher observations determined the results of the study. Recommendations were made for future application of the study.
