Current Project:

ArtWorks: A Mural Project with Elementary Students

It’s one of those once in a lifetime opportunities to bring together young minds, dedicated teachers and a professional artist for a mural project designed to engage kids in their power to create, help them build community connections, and explore how they can influence the world through process of making something.

Creative Pinellas, in partnership with Pinellas County Public Works, has been invited by the Pinellas County school system to create a mural based on the desire of the students, teachers and families to engage in an arts project.  

Community Survey

The results are in! The community survey was created to help the community surrounding Sutherland Elementary to learn about the ArtWorks Mural project and to share how they felt about the project. This survey was sent to the areas surrounding Sutherland Elementary School and to the Sutherland Elementary families. This survey allowed us to welcome community conversation as we maintain a strong focus on what the overall experience can mean to the children in the Sutherland Elementary community.
