Everyone hand a hand in creating this mixed media mural. Our students ages 6-14, high school & adult volunteers, staff and even some parents stayed behind to help add the finishing touches. The materials used to create this mixed media masterpiece: magazine paper, special hand painted paper, oil pastels, spray paint, custom paper log houses, boys and girls from 1812, and a lot of glue/gloss!
We can’t wait to see it in the exhibit!
