Students Create Mural to Mark WRMS Anniversary

The art class at W. Ross Macdonald School created a mural to mark the school’s 150th anniversary being celebrated this month.
Art teacher Carolyn Cresswell said students used an 18-foot wall beside the school cafeteria for their project. They decided to combine a four- by three-foot wooden painting with a geometric pattern.
“Accessibility is key at our school,” Cresswell said in a news release. “Accessibility means that signs are in braille and large print; items can be touched and enjoyed by all.”
She said her preference is that the “art should be interactive, incorporating multiple senses, such as added sound or scent, stories that evoke emotions through the art.”
The painting is made entirely using the school’s colours of blue, silver and white. Surrounding the painting are 151 tiles, handmade by students with their favourite textures, using seashells, beads, pie cutters and texture tools.
