Our Tree in Mural

Paves the Way is a wonderful event held in the front of the Clinton Presidential Library.  Schools from all over Little Rock Arkansas gather on squares of side walk that line the front lawn of the library.  Each school comes to create an original chalk art mural for everyone to enjoy.  Elementary art clubs through high school art groups show up to work.  This year we did a combined grade level mural designed by a senior who has been doing Paves the Way for her fourth year.  The experienced artists paired with new chalk artists to create a colorful chalk mural with a positive message.  Ours said “We Danced, We United in Peace and that’s all that Matters.”  Our drawing starts in the city and moves through a global image on to a country image.  The last two sidewalk blocks we added because we had such a large group of excited students.  So we added outer space and under the sea.  Students learned who Keith Haring was and his iconic figures.  We also learned to add visual elements to tie the whole mural together.  We used colorful leaves to dance across all the side walk blocks, along with hearts, and bubbles.    http://theafoundation.org/about-thea/

Leaf symbolizes Costa Rica from our exchange student.

We had a supportive senior group to help aid our youngest artists this year.  The collaboration and support each student provided was remarkable.  Everyone was able to add a bit of themselves to the mural.
