A celebration surrounds the newest mural at Johnson Elementary School!

Led by two parent volunteers, Johnson Elementary School students just completed a mural project with the help of artist Chicho Lorenzo.  Adrienne Dent and Doris Simpson, parents of Johnson Elementary school students, initiated the project by hiring Chicho Lorenzo.  The Charlottesville Mural Project funded the project, paying for supplies and an artist stipend.

Over the course of three months, Adrienne and Doris arranged for Chicho to work in the classrooms with students, brainstorming mural themes by drawing pictures and sharing stories.
