East Aiken students transform bare wall into a musical mural
Artist Lynn Miller, a member of the South Carolina Arts Commission’s Artist Roster, recently worked with fifth graders at East Aiken School of the Arts to create a mural for the music room. East Aiken is an Arts in Basic Curriculum Project site.
“I like them to relate to the people who are on the mural,” Miller said. “Their participation is a wonderful experience for them. They become part of the school’s history, and later they can show what part of the work they did. There’s a lot of energy here.”
The Artist Roster is an extensive list of artists in many disciplines who are available to presenters and to serve in arts education programs in South Carolina. Any presenter — from arts organizations to parks to recreation centers — may search the roster to find artists. Many artists have work samples posted on the roster, and many artists offer programs for a range of age groups, including adults.
