Emerson Elementary School Youth 

This  mural school project  was partnership of the Creative Advantage Program, Seattle Public Schools and Seattle Office and Culture. I worked with 3rd, 4th and 5th graders for  6 weeks between January and March 2020 unfortunately  Covid, then  the StayHome order was put in place,  I ended up going back to school in August before the new school year.  

Our mural concept idea boil down to portrait  students   demographics and the portrait of school mascot, the eagle.

 Emerson School  is located in South East Seattle where  most communities of color reside: blacks, muslims, asians and latinos
