About the Project

Created over the six week summer program, the core group of students worked as facilitators to lead all students from pre-K through junior high to help in the mural studio. The mural included both painted and glass mosaic elements.

Images included in the mural touch on the importance of water; to drink and cleanse, nourish plants, our local watershed, marine life and the water cycle.
