New York Avenue School Mural

The aquatic mural at New York Avenue School is my first mural in conjunction with Stockton’s Center for Community Schools. The program is designed to bring art, culture, and life skills to the children of Atlantic City. Unlike my other work on this blog, the under water mural is not something I painted alone. The children of New York Avenue school aided in the design and painting of this mural. Their art teacher, Ms. Liz Parsons, also was a part of the ocean mural’s creation. Sharing the process of making a mural was a joy. The children learned a lot and have a wall in their school they can forever be proud of. Our finished coral reef is gorgeous.
