Indian Creek Elementary

Collaborative "Better Together" mural at Indian Creek

Paint Love artist Christina Wert worked with Indian Creek art teacher Zully Conde and Paint Love's executive director Julie McKevitt to create an amazing collaborative project for 90 third, fourth, and fifth grade students at Indian Creek Elementary. Indian Creek is a Title 1 where over 80 different languages are represented in the study body!  The team created a mural concept promoting peace, unity, and kindness. All of the students contributed illustrated fairy tales around one of those themes. The result was a beautiful mural that proudly hangs in their school hallway! Julie painted the faces of the children in the classrooms, so the kids could watch and participate in the entire process of the project. While we were installing the piece in the hallway, students kept coming by and getting so excited to see how their contributions came together
