Partnership for Social Good – Outdoor Mural at Robert E. Wilson Public School

Robert E. Wilson (REW) Public School applied for a Paint It Up! Grant from Crime Prevention Ottawa for an outdoor mural.  The theme of the mural, as selected by the students, is: “Robert E. Wilson PS – A Place We All Call Home”.  REW was selected for a grant, however, we did not receive the total amount of funding we requested.  We are now reaching out to community leaders to help us raise the funds for the remaining expenses.

We received a grant in the amount of $7,500, which will cover the expenses for the Mural Artist, Claudia Salguero and all the required materials.  We are looking for an additional $2,600 to make the student and community engagement pieces of this project even better!

Student Engagement – Art Workshops

We will bring in an Expressive Arts Facilitator to work with EVERY student at REW to create a piece of art that represents their interpretation of the theme – we want each student to be able to provide their input, in the form of artwork, about what the mural themes of safety, inclusion, love, welcome, freedom, respect, family, support, and community mean to them. We want each student to know that they have a voice and that what they have to say is important. The artwork created will then be used throughout the school to supplement the messages of the mural.

Individual Art Session:

  • This includes going into a class and working with the students on a piece of art that represents their interpretation of the theme.
  • The students will work with different mediums and art supplies.
  • The students will really get to delve into what the theme means to them in a safe, supported environment, knowing that their voices are heard.
  • The artwork created will then be used throughout the school to supplement the message of the mural.

The goal is to hold 12 art sessions in total – one in each of the 10 classes at REW, one at the Wabano Centre and one at the Ottawa Technical Secondary School (OTSS).

A sponsorship of even one Art Session will allow us to make this experience more meaningful for a portion of the students.

We would be happy to meet with our sponsor to brainstorm creative and inspired ways to acknowledge your support.
