I worked with a great group of students from Springer Center School in Cincinnati, Ohio to create this wonderful mural in their school hallway. We focused on imagery reflecting nature and the students filled in my icons with their own designs. I lead two residencies with different groups of students to complete the entire 90 foot hallway. The students learned about shapes, symbols, patterns, and how these elements repeat in nature and can be used to make a collaborative piece of public art. The final mural was filled with beautiful details designed and painted by the students. I use this mural making process when I work with schools. This mural has become a strong branding element for the Springer Center. It's used on marketing materials, videos and a show piece when families tour the school.
