Art Majors make their mark at Newton North this spring

Art Major 4 seniors are painting murals on the walls of Newton North as one of their final projects. Students submit a design proposal that is reviewed by administrators. Once their proposal is approved, students are assigned a location. They begin by outlining the mural in pencil. Over the course of weeks, they use acrylic paint to create their mural. Art teacher Shannon Slattery provides guidance by visiting the students as they work.

Seniors painting murals this year include Amar Ahmad (refrigerator), Ally Appel (street sign), Paula Diaz (astronaut), Amy Kaluzhny (three dancers), Hyesuk Kim (penguins), Faith Lyons (floating house), Sophie Montague (scuba), Melanie Nicolazzo (Lady Macbeth card), Sabrina Walsh (train), and Sarah White (redhead).
