West Central Elementary

At West Central Elementary, the students worked as a collective team over 4 weeks to created a student inspired mural. A team of Art Feeds Joplin educators lead the students through the entire brain storming process, where the students decided on the theme + color scheme in addtion to drawing hundreds of images they wanted to see in the mural. The students chose the theme Dreams + Perseverance. After the 4 weeks, the images were sent to one of our artists, Sam Matthews. Sam spent over 40 hours piecing the images together to make one giant piece of art. After, Sam sent her drawings to our graphic designer, Abby Spillane. Abby also spent over 40 hours perfected this piece of art. 

This mural would not be possible without our sponsor, Anne Sharp!
