7th Graders Turn Parking Lot into Thought-Provoking Artwork

Syracuse Academy of Science 7th Grade Chalk Project

Thursday, June 15th, 2023: Syracuse Academy of Science 7th graders headed outside to create chalk drawings that depicted integral scenes and quotations from the novel Refugee by Alan Gratz. Each team chose one of three main characters and came up with an important scene and a quotation related to that scene that was vital to the development of the novel's central theme. Each team had to prepare a sketch plan and then execute their ideas to fill an entire parking space. 

Atoms covered 18 parking spaces in our lot with beautiful, thought-provoking artwork!
