Painting a welcoming picture – Times-Herald

By Thomas Gase

Instead of welcoming returning classmates back from summer break with a handshake or a quick “hello,” students at Vallejo Charter instead created a mural, “Our Message of Self Discovery.”

The mural project, from Vallejo Teaching Artists in partnership with the Vallejo City Unified School District Expanded Learning Program, introduces students to public art through the collaborative process of creating a mural with a professional muralist — in this instance Leah Tumerman, a muralist for years who was inspired by the work of the five students behind the greeting.
