Niner Elementary - 5th Grade Graduates - Mural Design

Donation protected
Hello! This team seeks funding to create a custom mural for Niner Elementary's first graduating class from 5th grade.

Our team will collaborate with the first graduating class from Niner Elementary to create a beautiful mural commemorating their hard work and dedication to learning. The funding we seek will cover the artist's time and all the necessary supplies to paint the mural.

MJ and Chalice worked with The Arts and Empowerment Project to conduct therapeutic art classes at Niner Elementary School. They have a deep affection for children and the community that the teachers have built and wish to contribute to it. Deneer is a locally famous mural artist in the city who desires to give back to the community. They have worked on several projects with schools in Charlotte.

About the School: Niner University Elementary at Amay James is a public school created and led by education experts at UNC Charlotte. We help young students discover the joy of learning and foster the growth of empathy and responsibility through knowledge. Research-validated practices drive our authentic and meaningful curriculum, and we strive to support each learner’s unique identity in a place where academic achievement, social development, and happiness can thrive. Our program is intended to support students from high-needs, low-performing schools or individual students struggling with school. We currently offer grades K-5.
