For the past two years, Art Club has been working on a mural in collaboration using members’ artwork which will be merged into one big piece and is located in North next to Mr. Brad Doctor’s room N116. The mural has been delayed in the past, and COVID-19 has further complicated its production. Like most other extracurriculars, Art Club requires standard social distancing, masks, and divider practices when in the building.

“Working on the actual mural itself has been increasingly difficult because of the design that was chosen, and the amount of time we are limited to when we go out there,” Sofia Pavlic, senior, said. “We face challenges due to the fact that some people who have designs on the wall either graduated or don’t show up to every meeting.” 

In order to accomplish such a project, Art Club is currently scheduling different times next semester when different individuals can work on their share, putting the mural on hold until then.

“We have included all options for virtual students and plan on extending in-person opportunities for them, on a rotating basis, if they choose to come to the building,” Mrs. Elena Lopez, art teacher, said. “All meetings are run on TEAMS so that everyone is involved. Communication can sometimes be challenging, to be sure that everyone is going to be on the same wavelength.”
