The Compton Early College High School ArtsMatter team was inspired by the muralists featured in PST: LA/LA. During weekly meetings, the team accessed the Pacific Standard Time website to analyze murals and gain inspiration. Through discussion and engagement activities, the team decided to continue its work from last year and focus on student murals.
I hosted an ArtsMatter professional development session in my classroom using the PST: LA/LA Year 2 Presentation. The six teachers in attendance engaged in discussion focusing on arts integration. In addition, I shared the plans for our project this year in hopes of encouraging them all to participate and encourage their students to do the same.
This has been an amazing opportunity and we are extremely grateful! -Kimberly Ponce
