When we were working with Spanish III class on a PBL project, Creating Social Awareness Through Art, I immediately thought of Tonia, The Barefoot Artist. Tonia and I were in art classes together throughout high school and I've always thought she was so creative and talented in art. I also keep in touch with Tonia on Facebook and I've been able to follow her career as a mural artist. I knew she was the perfect artist to come and inspire our students in their PBL mural project. We were very fortunate to have Tonia come to our school and give a presentation with some of her original artworks as well as slideshow of her murals. Tonia also worked with our students walking around and giving advice on their individual pieces. We all learned so much from Tonia and appreciate all her ideas and suggestions for our collaboration project. It was Tonia to suggest our mural come together in a 3-D installation. Thank you Tonia, it turned out amazing!!!
