Mural Sketch

Background: Kala Art Institute Artists-in-Schools program (AIS) continues our partnership, started in 2009, with the Bay Area Mathematics Project (BAMP) to offer an arts-integrated learning experience to middle school students in Berkeley.  Together, professional math coaches and teaching artists lead innovative workshops exploring relationships among art, math, and the environment in all three Berkeley middle schools – Longfellow, King and Willard.  As an extension of this project, muralist team Eduardo Pineda and Joaquin Newman led workshops with students at King Middle School applying the concepts of ration and proportion in the context of community murals.
