Art students of Mallory Maunder at Little Cypress Intermediate and Candice Shafer at Mauriceville Elementary participated in a mural project with the Stark Museum of Art on Wednesday, January 23.

Each year, the museum sends staff to local elementary schools with a huge outlined drawing and the students complete the drawing by painting assigned portions of the artwork. When each school completes their painting, the Museum has the individual sections made into a banner that completes the mural.

The banner hangs on the museum fence facing Seventh Street. This year, the students are doing abstracts of actual paintings. LCI’s painting is of Old Faithful geyser in Yellowstone and MVE’s is a landscape.
