Creativity Unleashed: Murals by Student Artists
Murals have been a staple in Baltimore communities for decades. They highlight the beauty and the struggle, the challenges and triumphs of the residents of this great city. Murals are the artistic expression of some of our most passionate residents---even the little ones. At Creative City Public Charter School (Creative City), our K-5th graders use murals to transform spaces into colorful learning environments. We are a tight-knit school and encourage our students to use murals to connect with their surroundings--and each other.
Creative City strongly emphasizes learning by using the arts. We are a tuition-free public charter school that engages students' creativity and challenges them to solve problems, think outside the box and be innovative learners. The warm and colorful murals around our campus are more than decorations--they reflect our school's culture and values: collaboration, caring, creating and questioning.
Our art programs are designed to help our K-5 students channel their creative energy in positive ways. Through the process of creating murals, students work together to develop a design, plan out the mural, and execute their vision, taking ownership of the process and the result. This is creativity unleashed. This is Creative City.
History, science and math can (and are) incorporated into our mural projects. Painting pictures of historic figures, for example, or creating a visual of a winning science fair project are all possibilities to learn in this meaningful way. Our young artists learn the value of working together to create something impactful, and we love showing it off on our Instagram.
If you're looking for a new school home for your K-5 grader, Creative City Public Charter School is the perfect place to start your search. Not only are our teachers qualified and committed, but our curriculum was also strategically designed to bring out the best in students.
