The ¡CityArts! blog presents the EDTAP Success Series.
Follow our five full-time AmeriCorps Expanded Day Teaching Artists (EDTAP) as they use art to help teach math, reading, social studies, and more at two Providence middle schools, Roger Williams MS and Nathan Bishop MS.
In this post, EDTAP member Caitlin Magner (pictured at right, after school at ¡CityArts! on Broad Street) tells us about her recent project at Roger Williams MS.
“In Mrs. Cappalli’s current events class, we painted an anti-gang violence mural on Roger Williams MS’s retaining wall, which faces a basketball court, a preschool, and a high school.
We presented the mural in a Providence citywide competition at the State House and placed 2nd! We were the only middle school to compete against other high schools and still won.
I am so fortunate to be working with such a wonderful group and am looking forward to our future successes.”
