Nearly 50 fifth grade students in the Art Club, under the direction of art teacher Franceska Baer, have created a beautiful mural composed of 144 painted and glazed tiles.
The mural ties in with the school’s character education program and is entitled, “Have You Filled a Bucket Today?”
Each student in the club was assigned more than one tile to paint. Once completed, the mural was assembled and glazed by Baer.
With the goal of creating a mural every year, this is the second mural project that the Parkway Art Club has completed. Last year, the students created a tile mural welcoming all to their school, complete with mascot – the Parkway Bear. Next year’s project is in the discussion phase, and different media are being examined.
