This year at Norton Middle School, several students worked hard to turn an ordinary wall into a beautiful, eye-popping mural. The piece was unveiled Monday night at a School Committee meeting.
“It was totally created by the students,” said art teacher Sally Greer.
Back in October Greer was approached by assistant principal Ronnie Goldstein, who wanted to do something positive for the school and brighten it up. Together they thought of a mural. They used some plywood and made a frame.
Greer told her art classes about the mural. Many ideas were submitted by the students, and between Greer, Goldstein and Mr. Michael Kramer, they chose the winners who could pick a friend to help paint.
Artists selected were eighth-graders Hannah Patalano, Kiely Mcgill, Caroline Golota, Hannah Mackie, Sara Jarbeau, Danielle Whitman, Kyle Derksen and Madison Laroque-Thompson.
The students donated time and had to make up work they missed in the classroom. In one week, they finished the mural.
The mural is 4 feet high and 8 feet long and located in the C Wing of the school.
“The students were very creative with their design and painting of the mural,” Greer said. “It is the first mural at the middle school.”
