This mosaic mural was created by students in the Class of 2011 as a “gift” to the school. It remains one of my favorite projects because of the fun energy the seniors brought to it!
We started in September, rounding up funding, materials, and student participation. My daughter (a member of the Class of 2011) signed on as the Student Organizer, planning and communicating with her classmates about work sessions.
Of course we had gotten administrative approval ahead of time, as well as permission to adorn a particularly bland wall of the gymnasium.
The first mural sessions were spent creating tiles. Then we spent the rest of the school year’s workdays adding tiles to the mural, until it was ready to grout in May.
There’s so much character in this mural! The students (and several staff members) really left a piece of themselves for posterity. Check it out:
