Dibert Mural Project Unveiled!

As part of Dibert's transformation this year, Outreach partner KidsmArt placed artist-in-residence Elizabeth Traina at the school to create one of her famous mural's on the school's entry. The large mural fills the front facade of the building.  It is the result of a semester-long project led by KID smART artist-in-residence Elizabeth Traina that integrated arts learning into the school’s “F.I.R.S.T.” values (Focus, Integrity, Respect, Self-Determination and Teamwork).   171 students in grades 5-8 plus 34 staff members and volunteers contributed to the creation of the mural.  The project was made possible in part through the support of the New Orleans Kids Partnership.
