New Class Mural is a grassroots public art project located in Los Angeles, California. We believe creativity will change the world. Our goal is to build confidence and leadership skills by teaching photography and art.
This opportunity involves collaboration, design and execution of a project from start to finish. We create and support a social movement to cultivate empathy. Our program explores a sense of curiosity, goes beyond the head and straight to the heart, as well as asks questions to explore feelings.
Spring 2019, we are partnering with Kids Ocean Day to produce a mural at Will Rogers Elementary School in East Los Angeles. This organization is a project of The Malibu Foundation for Environmental Education, a Los Angeles based 501(c)3 that specializes in school outreach and coastal quality issues. We are also working with Esperanza Community Housing Corporation in South Los Angeles. Our mural will be located in the Mercado La Paloma.
Summer 2017, we spent 3 weeks on the Navajo Nation in Shonto, Arizona working with the children at Shonto Preparatory School. We produced 2 murals on the Navajo Nation spelling out the words LOVE and BELIEVE chosen by the children attending the program. These murals are made of the photographs the children took during the workshop. Our theme was patterns in nature.
We produced 5 murals throughout 2017. These murals are located in San Francisco, CA, Shonto, AZ and Boulder, CO. To view work created by New Class Mural check out our instagram.
During our workshops, we use cameras and we discuss ways to capture an image by observing their environment, framing their subject and using light. With photographs taken during this time, we create a mural on the wall of their school.
