Service-Learning Proposal Description


Briefly describe the project and the community need to be addressed.

Answer Crestview is remodeling their library and has a small reading space that they would like to put a mural in. A library is very important space. One way to cultivate creativity and independent learning is by using space in a way that activates and engages young minds. We would be paying students 10 dollars an hour and offering them a minimum of 15 hours plus any additional work as needed.


What is the mission of the agency or organization?

Answer Our mission is "That all students will reach their potential, both academically and morally." Our goal is to educate children to become successful, productive, and independent members of a free society--to prepare students to accept the privileges and responsibilities of citizenship in a democratic country. Our mission also includes supporting families in their journey of raising children who have a strong faith in their Creator and Savior.


What skills are required for this project? 

Answer 1.) Completion of Painting 1 or an equivalent course. (Submission of a digital porfolio is required if a student is currently enrolled. Acceptance is not guarenteed.) 2.) Wide range of technique and style 3.) Understanding of structure, lighting, and color


What are the objectives for the student learning and service?

Answer Its important to understand that, as an artist, you have a skill and a trade that can impact your community directly and outside the traditional gallery setting. And, while often times this career choice goes under appreciated and misunderstood, there are certain ways an artist can meet a commnity where its at and also raise their awareness of and apreciation for art and creativity. This is a great opportunity for UW students to collaborate with community members outside their normal sphere of influence including: school administration, volunteer parents and students. In addition you would be working with a small number of both student and professional artists.


What are the availability requirements for the student?

Answer You are guarenteed 15 hours, but may be asked to work additional hours until completion of the project. We ask for a flexible availability including some weekends and mornings.
