Researching impermanent artforms and participatory art has led us to explore endless ideas that we can share with our students. Each collective art making experience is created with intention and working with other people. Working with other people involves compromise, an important problem solving trait for students to practice.
This is kind of the way we envision the sidewalks…
…with our circle of hands serving as the “joints” between chalk drawings. We are imagining that our work will be roughly a foot wide, focusing on length and connections between our schools and our central point. Our goal is to cover just about .5 miles with our students!
