Traveling Classroom: CamionArte! (CamionArte & 's Blog

A Big Update on Classroom on Wheels - Part 2 (Irapuato)

TAN 473 also works with Irapuato Albergue Infantil - A home for boys. Through the existence of CamionArte, a mobile classroom and now library, we have succeeded in bringing weekly art programing to the boys, have started a weekly literacy program as well and have completed two murals with the boys and local artists. We used graffiti as a mode to interest the younger boys in reading and writing. Each boy learned to write his name and practiced it in multiple classes, the final result was the graffiti version of their name on a wall in their shared home. This semester we are starting a vegetable garden and nature/environmental ed workshop with the boys as well.
