Service-Learning is “an educational approach integrating community service with intentional learning activities, working together toward outcomes that are mutually beneficial” – CACSL
CU Expo 2013 Service Learning Project: WestRock Community Centre Mural Painting Arts-based projects can have a very positive, galvanizing effect on a community. Corner Brook artist, and Grenfell Campus Fine Arts graduate, Nancy Jacobsen will work alongside the WestRock Community Centre to create a painted mural on the wall of their multi-purpose room. All aspects of the project – from inception, planning and fine-tuning of the design, to the actual painting and clean-up – will be done in a spirit of partnership and consensus between the WestRock leadership, the community members, and the artist. The process of creating this mural is intended to foster community reflection on the goals and mission of WestRock, co-generate knowledge, and kindle excitement by reinventing surroundings, and enhancing the relationship with Grenfell Campus.
CU Expo attendees are invited to visit WestRock Community Centre to meet, chat with, and paint alongside the artist and community members, and contribute to the project. No artistic ability or previous experience necessary!
