Dranesville Elementary Students Paint Mural

Dranesville Elementary School students learned the importance of public art through a fun and exciting activity: painting their very own 10’ X 30’ foot mural. With the help of the Docent/GRACE Arts parent volunteers, Marc Archambault and Stewart Image, over six hundred kindergarten through sixth grade students had the chance to work together to create their own public art project that will hang in their school’s main lobby. The Docent volunteers worked hard to trace the mural pattern (designed by Marc Archambault) onto foam core sheets that were then divided into seventy five 2’ x 2’ square tiles for the students to paint in groups of four. The square tiles come together to create a fine symbol of community involvement and cooperation.

The Initiative for Public Art in Reston (IPAR) was formed to inspire an ongoing commitment to public art. Many of their projects can be seen around the town. Public art creates a more beautiful environment, and can encourage cultural growth as well as inspire the people who live and work there.

The Dranesville Elementary School Community would like to give a big thank you to Larry Spevak at ColorBurst Systems in Ashburn, for lending a helping hand in this project by ordering the foam core sheet for the students and allowing the Docents to craft and cut the sheets in his facility.
