MURAL RESIDENCY: 'Exploring The Harlem Renaissance'

I am in Warrenton, North Carolina for a one week visual arts recidency at the Warren New Tech. High School. I am working with the students to create a mural celebrating the Harlem Renaissance. The students studied the Harlem Renaissance in their history class, now we are using Art integration to explore the concept.
During the early part of the ...20th Century, Harlem neighborhood in NewYork City became home to a growing "Negro" middle class also known as the black intelligentsia. The Harlem Renaissance emerged out of the changes that had taken place in the African American communities since the abolishment of slavery. Industrialization in American northern cities were attracting black people from the rural south which gave rise to a new mass culture.

African-American fine art, music and literature were all absorbed into American mainstream cultures, bringing attention to a marginalized segment of American population. This period of emerging vibrant African-American culture in American society, especially in the art, music and literature was known as The Harlem Renaissance.

BERTIE COUNTY MURAL at Aulander Elementary School January, 2012




North Carolina Arts Council awarded a grant (Arts in Education) that brought Tunde to Bertie County to work with the students at Aulander Elementary School on his Mural Connection Residency Program.
Tunde a North Carolina resident artist worked with a core group of students in grades 2, 3, 4 and 5 to create a mural that explores Bertie County . Emphasis was on the use of elements art such as color, line, shape, form, value, space and texture to create a visual narrative based on the students’ knowledge of their County (Bertie). In Social Studies class, the students were engaged in a research for better understanding of Bertie County. All information collected during the reseach study were used to guide the students to create visual concept for the mural.
The mural is now a permanent learning feature for all students.
