Restoring Arts Education

Why Murals?

School Murals by Thrive Collective creates public art that transforms public schools into centers of creative collaboration and change. They raise the bar of possibility as students, faculty, families, and artists conceive and execute a shared vision, together. Their permanence serves as a continuing reminder of what’s possible when communities and schools partner for sustainable change.
