JCSA Wall Mural Art Project

Beautification Project-JCSA art students in grades 9-12 painted a “Quilt Mural” on outside school wall which reflects our similarities(triangles) and differences(colors) which symbolize our individuality and demonstrate that together we are bold, bright, and beautiful. This mural is the beginning of a series of mural paintings by our art students facilitated by Christina Daniels, Art Education Instructor. The different murals will enhance our school culture through students’ collective problem solving and collaborative creativity.
