Students that are studying the Great Depression and the New Deal would be interested in learning about the Public Works of Art Project from 1933-1934. Over 15,000 murals were painted during this time period in the Unites States.
This slideshow includes information on:
The Great Depression
The New Deal
The Public Works of Art Project and how much workers were paid
The Coit Tower Murals in San Francisco
Post office murals
A short assignment for students
This would be a great 10 minute intro before a mural painting project.
