GHS Art III Mural Complete!

GHS Art III Mural Complete!

The mural in the Library Media Center is complete!  We would love for you to see it in person!  Art III students worked for many weeks to create this colorful, collaborative, magical painting on the wall.  The space has dramatically changed…what was once a gray wall is now a swirling composition filled with greens and blues and golds.  I am so proud of my Art III students who conceptualized this original design and even came to school on a Saturday to complete the piece!
