Burr Mosaic Project
Burr is partnering with Green Star Movement to install an amazing, permanent, outdoor mosaic on the east side of the school (behind the Organic Learning Garden, facing Ashland Ave).
This project aims to:
- Enhance Burr’s Art Curriculum.
- Provide a unique, ongoing, experiential learning opportunity for ALL grade levels, Pre-K – 8.
- Instill school pride and strengthen self esteem in students taking part in an enduring, high-profile public art installation.
- Encourage multi-generational collaboration between students, faculty, parents and community members.
- Act as an introduction to service learning.
- Foster a sense of inclusive partnership between Burr and its community members through Project Community Day/s when anyone is invited to come and work alongside Burr sudents on the mosaic project.
- Build critical thinking skills during in-school design and planning workshops held by Green Star Movement.
