Loper Elementary Students to Collaborate with Artist Artur Silva on School Mural

 

Indianapolis – April 11, 2018… Students at Loper Elementary are involved in planning and co-creating a mural with Artur Silva, a well-known Indianapolis-based visual artist. This project, made possible by grants from the Lee Marks-John DePrez Community Arts Fund at Blue River Community Foundation (BRCF) and BRCF Community Endowment Fund, is part of Arts for Learning’s Fresh StART program that enables students to contribute to the creative re-imagining of their schools and communities. Through this program, students meet and collaborate with an artist to create an artwork that transforms a space in their school.

 

The mural will focus on the theme of kindness as an antidote to school bullying, and illustrate that differences are accepted and celebrated at Loper Elementary. The artwork, which is being designed for an eight-foot tall and 43-foot wide hallway in the school, will be unveiled at a public event at the end of May.

 

This is one of four Fresh StART projects that Arts for Learning is currently overseeing. Projects are also underway at Hendricks Elementary in Shelbyville, Jennings County High School in North Vernon, and Central Elementary in Lebanon.
