Photo of the colorful wall mural at Mountain View Middle School created by students using drip art

Kudos to students at Mountain View Middle School for their school-wide collaborative mural which was recently completed. Each student used watercolors, crayons, colored pencils or markers to create a mixed media drip design. Each design was then connected to create a large wall mural that wraps the hallways. The overall goal of the project was for students to learn about contemporary artist Jen Stark, who inspired the lesson and to feel a sense of unity during these times of separation and space. Although social distancing requires us to stay 6 feet apart when possible, this mural shows pieces of student art can be surrounded by our peers, symbolizing that we are all in this together.

In total 167 students participated from 6th, 7th and 8th grade.

Great job Mountain View Middle School!
