Cardinal Valley’s Art Club Creates Park Mural

Cardinal Valley’s Art Club Creates Park Mural
15 students and their art teacher lined up on the footbridge

The art club at Cardinal Valley Elementary this week is finishing a colorful mural on the footbridge at nearby Valley Park. Students just need to add a few small details and apply an exterior varnish to complete their community project.

Friends of Wolf Run, a grassroots network striving to improve the watershed, had sought Cardinal Valley’s help at Vaughn’s Branch. Students of visual art teacher Michelle Armstrong happily created a mural design to submit to the LFUCG Public Arts Commission. And after winning the city’s approval, the art club got down to business – and fun, too.

“The students really had a great time. When school let out, several other Cardinal Valley students showed up and complimented the art club on their work,” Armstrong said after a recent outing to the park. “We hope that our mural will encourage people who visit the creek to help keep it clean and free of trash,” she added.
