What's Campus Canvas?

Local Artists Take Over Memorial Elementary.

Our campus is your canvas. This is an opportunity to fill the empty walls with vibrant and diverse art for the kiddoes. As Memorial Elementary is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) Candidate school, the goal is to represent the PYP’s six transdisciplinary themes: 


  1. WHO WE ARE

  2. WHERE WE ARE IN PLACE AND TIME

  3. HOW WE EXPRESS OURSELVES

  4. HOW THE WORLD WORKS

  5. HOW WE ORGANIZE OURSELVES

  6. SHARING THE PLANET
