It all started with a class assignment about the murals by Kelsey Montague.
Students learned about how she creates murals as well as the techniques used to create such huge pieces of artwork. This inspired an awesome competition! Students throughout the entire school had an opportunity to entire their designs for a chance to have their art on our Middle School Arts Building. The theme was "Past Inspired, Flying Higher" and each set of "wings" was inspired by one of the Arts Disciplines showcased at Dade County Schools because we know the Arts give us wings! Below is a slide show of the winners and honorable mentions!
Then came time to bring the sketches to live!
Over the summer we scheduled time with the awesome artists and let them start the mural, then with the help of Mrs. Heidi Wilson, her teaching aid, Mr. Jessie, and Mrs. Gann, the murals were finished! We cannot wait to see our students showing what gives them the wings to fly!
