Progress at UCCS!

Look at those beautiful colors! The design is really coming along. A special thank you to a handful of helpful 6th graders for stepping in while the 8th graders finished up their end of the semester tests.

UCCS: Paint on the walls

The walls of Urban Choice Charter School are slowly but surely filling up with lovely color! So exciting to see the progress. So far Make Your MARC has been able to work with 3 very helpful art classes.

Check it out!

Mural Project this June: UCCS

Make Your MARC is excited to announce that there will be a new mural project happening this June with Urban Choice Charter School.

UCCS New Logo[1]

The project will involve beautifying the hallway leading to the school’s cafeteria. UCCS’s wonderful 8th grade art classes will be leading the way, with the help of parents, teachers, staff and you!

If you are interested in getting involved, we are looking for artist assistants and volunteers to hold responsibilities and take part in the mural making. Design tasks are already well on their way, so email us at marcmurals@gmail.com as soon as possible to get involved.

More detailed scheduling coming soon. To learn more about UCCS, check out their mission page.

Mural Reception at Foodlink

The mural showcase for our Foodlink mural collaboration was a great success. We kicked off the night honoring the contributions of Foodlink, Single Volunteers of Rochester (SVR), our community volunteers, and our Make Your MARC lead Artist, Janelle Sandefur. There were delicious home baked goods, a ton of pizza, and the evening even concluded with a tour of the new Foodlink Headquarters! This mural was such a great experience.
Thank you everyone for all of your great work!!
