For the month of October, I was fortunate to be chosen for an artist -in-residency project at the Resurrection-St. Paul School in Ellicott city. The project was jointly funded by the school and the Maryland State Arts Council.
Working with the entire fourth grade, we created a mural which shows the state of Maryland from the western lake district, down through the Cheasapeake Bay and ending at the Atlantic Ocean. The three panels, each measuring 4' x 7', will be installed in the front entry hallway at the school

Each student drew and painted two or three images on the finished mural. Staff and volunteers had a day when they could add their artistic touches as well. The principal Mrs. Murphy and the Vice Principal, Mrs. Cottrell showed up on staff painting day as well as Monsignor Diezenback and Father Matt. The school will celebrate the mural unveiling on November 7th.
