Mural Location: Petaluma, Ca
Mural Type: School Murals
Our mission working with Casa Grande High School was to create a series of exterior murals that encapsulated the school's iconography and spirit to help students feel a sense of identity and community in their place of education. We worked closely with the Casa Grande High School students and administration to develop a highly detailed school mural filled with the school's colors and important academic subjects. Moving from left to right the mural features a Gaucho, Horse, Casa Grande Baseball Logo, Chicken, Petaluma Clocktower, Salmon representing the school fishery, a hand painting to represent the arts, an owl, flowers and large CG letters representing Casa Grande. We worked with students to create this outdoor mural project directing and teaching a group of students on the fundamentals behind the mural painting process. It was important for the school mural to feature a painterly quality by the students. Fueled with the idea of building community, we worked with our local sponsor Kelly Moore Paints to get the paints and supplies donated for this project. The mural spans over 80' wide and stands 8' tall. To protect the latex, acrylic and aerosol painted mural for years to come we used a high-quality weather resistant semi-gloss clear coat.
