More about ARCK:
Art Resource Collaborative for Kids (ARCK) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that brings free arts integration lessons to Boston Public Schools in underserved communities. Our lessons, which are centered on leadership, civic engagement, and social justice, build the social-emotional skills such as critical thinking and empathy necessary for shaping the next generation of creative leaders. As part of ARCK’s programming, eighty seventh grade students in collaboration with local artists created a mural entitled “Paredes Que Hablan” (Walls that Speak). The mural depicted the students’ experiences with both physical and metaphorical walls in the hopes of a future filled with communication and empathy. At Miles of Murals, a new group of seventh grade students along with artists Cedric Douglas and Percy Fortini-Wright will unveil two new murals.
