Mural Creation in Action!

Young Audiences’ Professional Teaching Artist Mark Yasenchack worked with early learners and their parents at Cuyahoga County Universal PreK (UPK) to create  innovative murals for the school and the community. Each workshop included parents, teachers, and children, reinforcing how important teamwork and collaboration is to success.
Mark started the project by asking preschoolers what made a school, a home, a neighborhood, and a community, and was surprised to hear that the students named people and animals (instead of what he expected–cars, buildings, etc). Their conversations resulted in murals that are more mosaic in nature and leaves a message with viewers that they are a part of something bigger.
