Shaping our world
A colorful new six-by-seven-foot mural painted by local elementary school students now brightens a third floor wall of the College of Education’s Aderhold Hall, thanks to a collaborative effort led by a group of UGA art education students. Titled “Shaping our World,” the mural depicts the relationships between humans, animals and the environment. It was installed between the college’s Reading and School Psychology clinics. Lauren Kucera, an adjunct instructor, directed the project along with James Woglom, a doctoral student in art education. Kucera and Woglom taught a UGA art education class during the spring semester that featured a month-long practicum with students in the Gaines Elementary Afterschool Program.
