Description:  For our first project with Skinner West Elementary, from 2015 to 2016, Green Star Movement (GSM) helped the 7th and 8th grade students beautify the facade of their school with stars, a Chicago flag, a skyline, and a 3-dimensional sculpture on the corner of one wall. For our second project, completed in 2017, GSM worked with 4th-8th grade students to create a mural that incorporates symbols from a variety of cultures to celebrate the diversity and inclusivity of the school.
