Description: With Art Feeds mural curriculum, students work as a collective, school-wide team to design pieces of public art that are installed in their school or around the community. Students are led through the process by Art Feeds educators, and either create images that are directly depicted in the mural or brainstorm ideas that an artist then brings to life. Thanks to the dedication of their staff and volunteers, Art Feeds Joplin completed more than a dozen murals in Joplin Elementary schools and within the community by 2016.
