Anti Bullying Mural

Work in progress.

Clearview High School Anti-Bullying Mural

For the past 6 months, I have had the privilege of being artist-in-residence at Clearview Regional high School in Mullica Hill. Working with the art teachers and students on a mosaic mural has been both intense and fun. We started off back in October with a visiting poet, Shelly Benroya. Shelly helped the students to translate their stories of bullies and bullying into images that we could use to make in clay. The students worked collaboratively to generate a drawing from their poetry, that eventually has become a large scale mosaic. The final mural is not finished... yet. Please check back to see the final product.
