Fifth grade mural tour – Burton Elementary School

I booked a Feet on the Street tour of the Eastern Market Murals as a field trip for my group of 90 fifth graders to get them excited for their own mural project. Linda & Becky collaborated with me to create a customized tour to meet our goals for the trip. The tour they planned included a wide variety of murals and was educational, interactive and fun… At each stop, Linda and Becky told the group about the artist, the mural and its connection to the city of Detroit and/or the mural community. They also asked students to share their thoughts and ideas on each mural. Linda and Becky are clearly well known and liked; at several points during the tour, members of the community stopped to chat and share stories with our group. Their expert planning allowed us to see a variety of murals without feeling rushed. Their communication throughout the process was excellent; they were friendly and truly a pleasure to work with.
