Video: Artfully Engaged Students

Howenstine High Magnet School students picked up their paint brushes to partner with the Tucson Arts Brigade and the Barrio Centro Neighborhood Association to create the Barrio Centro Mural.

The colorful mural portrays the neighborhood’s history and diverse culture and also helps prevent graffiti, which had long been a problem in the neighborhood. The project not only beautified the neighborhood, it also engaged students in service learning, and showed the entire community the importance of arts education.
