The St. Anne’s Belfield Mural was completed last week–just in time for the last day of school. Mrs. Cox and the 8th grade class made a final push to have everyone paint their hand print on the tree and leave their mark. The “foliage” has filled-out in the last week, and over the years, as other 8th grade classes add their hand prints, the tree will grow into a mature, multi-colored spectacle.
I was very impressed with the dedication from the art kids. The mural fills the expansive wall of the basketball court area, and offers a more interesting visual landscape. It’s hard to believe such a mural was completed in only a short series of 45-minute class periods! Major props to Mrs. Cox!
The mural could not have happened without technical help from Blue Ridge Paint and Decorating, Benjamin Moore, Andrew Lettner Painting, and the on-site assistance from artist Patrick Costello. I hope to see STAB continue the mural tradition in years to come!
