For twenty days, I worked with the entire fifth grade at Veterans Elementary School in Ellicott City, MD to create a four panel mural depicting a Butterfly Garden.  

The four panels, each measuring 4' x 7' were put on display in the school lobby on June 2nd to be part of the PTA celebration of the 10 year anniversary of the new school building.  The mural was funded by grants from the Howard County Arts Council and the Veterans Elementary School PTA.  

Each of the 140 5th grade students drew and painted at least one image on the mural. The panels will be installed this summer.
