Murals by Laurie Marshall seen at A.P. Giannini Middle School, San Francisco, CA, San Francisco - Redwood Singing Tree of Biodiversity

Redwood Singing Tree of Biodiversity

1300 people in the A.P. Giannini Middle School community created this 14.5′ high x 8′ wide, honoring the different life forms in the eco-system that the students live in. The DNA is interwoven with the tree trunk, an idea from a 7th grader to symbolize that human beings are part of the natural world. Driving Question: “How do we honor the diversity of life and cultures in our community?”

Meet the Creator

I love the collaborative process – letting everyone know that whatever idea comes to them is needed by the project. I take responsibility for the unity and beauty of the creative outcome. I am committed to project-based learning and arts integration – allowing multiple intelligences to be expressed while young people explore and test themselves in the world by creating real products. I believe that children and adults have a fundamental drive for mastery, autonomy, purpose and connection. These are the principles upon which I facilitate learning experiences.
