It’s been almost 30 years of work in community art….molding, shaping itself, & evolving into it’s greatest potential.

Over the past month, UNCW’s Randall Library has offered students, faculty and staff a unique opportunity to unwind and find solace through the Mandala in Harmony project.

I had the honor to work with nationally and internationally known mural artist, Kyle Holbrook. He does monumental work both mural painting and in community education with the arts. His passion and skill with youth and community is POWERFUL. I have been doing murals for almost 30 years, and I still want to learn and grow! So, I put myself with the ones I need to be with! I spent a day with him not making a magnificent mural, but just learning, listening, and exercising to be better at my craft. 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 I am so grateful for this opportunity!!!

Legacy Mural Project with 4th grade art club.

Inspired by the “drip” art style of artist Jenn Stark

Painting to honor the school wide initiative, Leader in Me, Tree of Habits, Habit #7, SYNERGY, “Together is Better.”

The first forms of human markings tens of thousands of years ago humans made their marks on cave walls. These cave paintings are reminiscent of our now evolved murals paintings. To paint on the wall is part of our art history then and now. Our legacy will continue with time growing like tree rings, each year the art club will carry on by adding a ring of color and design to make their mark and grow the mural. This mural project culminates students working together with their present school culture and connecting with each other past, present, and future to make one brilliant form of synergy.

Starting with discussion of school values and culture these fourth graders were assigned letters to design with symbols pertaining to the project's theme. Technical skills included: preliminary sketches helping in brainstorming ideas followed by custom color mixing from a limited palette, as well as learning to utilize different paint brushes and artist’s tools. These fourth graders were able to collaboratively and cooperatively create a legacy project in their school cafeteria for all to enjoy now and in years to come.

The creation of art brings people together. We like this example of how Jose from Brella Home Improvement can work with his customers to create what's in their heart and mind. It's a team effort. This wood work idea gets embellished as people walk by. They place a flower and add to the masterpiece. What a beautiful creation of neighborhood & community. Check out Brella Home Services for more creative ideas for your home.
