Crestwood Elementary School faculty and students are creating a mural as a part of the statewide arts education program "whole school's."
The school mural was inspired by the book “Maybe Something Beautiful: How Art Transformed A Neighborhood."
Instead of transforming the neighborhood, teachers and students at Crestwood decided to paint the mural about transforming their school
"We’re moving towards more of an arts integration approach, and so one of the things we wanted to do was get ourselves involved. “Said, Brittani Emerson
Crestwood inclusion teacher.
“We had kids to come up and ask why we choose to do a tree, but I told the students this is our family tree, and everybody is a part of this family as of Crestwood, so we are very excited about it.” Said Erica Harvey Crestwood art teacher.
