Grandview students paint mural for community service

Students from Grandview High School's Colorado Creative Careers Student Association (CCSA) completed a 6-by-10-foot mural for the Aurora restaurant, Bracia, as part of a community service project.

working 6.jpgThe team of nine students, led by designer Anna Kennedy, worked with Bracia's business owners to complete the sketches and color schemes before painting the mural.  The students painted the mural on canvas with acrylic paint in just over four months.  The project provided an opportunity for students to work under commission and collaboration, as well as the opportunity to experience the labor of creating and installing a public piece of art.
