Working with Greta McLain, of GoodSpace Mural Studio, La Academia students helped design and create a bright, lively mural for their school. The students started by sharing their visions for themselves, their school and the community. With these stories and visions, the artist-in-residence made a plan, and with guidance, the students designed and painted sections of the mural using traditional patterns found in Latin American art. The artwork that now lives on the walls of the front entrance of the school is a beautiful symbol of community and collaboration and warmly welcomes students, staff, and visitors to La Academia.
