MLK Awareness Week Video

The Art Project that Murkland Elementary collaborates with the UMass Lowell Office of Multicultural Affairs every year for Martin Luther King Jr. Awareness Week.  All fourth graders under the guidance of Ms. Julia D’Angelo paint their rendition of the MLK theme, then the school hosts a contest.  We were fortunate this year to be able to record the work of one of the fourth grade art class as they began their artwork.
