LHS students leave their creative mark on Loveland
Posted Wednesday, May 22, 2013
Take a stroll down W. Loveland Avenue in Loveland and you can’t help but notice the landscape is evolving; 15 Loveland High School (LHS) juniors and seniors are putting their advanced art skills to work for the city by designing and painting a public mural.
“We are very excited about this project,” said Jennifer Grant, LHS art department chair. “During the first semester some students and I were talking about how it would be fun to repaint the wall as a class. I worked with Loveland City Manager Tom Carroll to turn that idea into a solid plan. My advanced placement studio and art three class together did the design and are working on the painting every afternoon.”
“It’s a lot of fun to work with such an artistic group, but it is challenging to collaborate at times,” said Mackenzie Mahon, LHS junior. “We all have different ideas for the wall, and we are combining them together to make a fun and creative wall that represents Loveland well. We are all learning how to work better as a team from this fun project, and it’s nice to spend some of our school day outdoors.”
If weather permits the project should be complete by Friday, May 24.
