NAHS Paints Mural at Monroe Crossing
Members of the National Art Honor Society painted a mural on a wall inside Monroe Crossing Mall in less than 24 hours. Senior Addie Sykes designed the painting from artwork created by special needs children from the Sharing Our HeARTs Art Show.
NAHS member Shelby Mullis reflected on the experience, â€œIâ€™m excited about the mural because I feel like people walking by will see it and ask what itâ€™s for; then, someone will tell them that itâ€™s about the way that art gives all of us a way to express ourselves, no matter who you are or what your life is like. And I hope that they will have a different idea about art because of it.â€ NAHS advisor Tracy Price added that â€œWords cannot express how proud I am of the students who worked on the mural! They collaborated; problem solved, and used their artistic talents to create a work of art that will hopefully make people smile for many years to come!â€
