Check out this exciting new mural outside the Performing Arts Center at PPHS! The high school's new Independent Art Class, Creative Career & Collective (3C), worked on designing the mural. With guidance from PPHS Art Teacher Sarah Bentley, the work symbolizes the unique strength, diversity, and creativity of Paw Paw students. Students were tasked with designing a butterfly mural. Eleventh-grade student Ezekiel King won the design contest! Art students worked together to bring the mural to life during and after school. Ezekiel had this to say about the finished mural, "It represents that even though everyone is different and might not get along, our school unifies us and we always cheer each other along in our sports or when we're doing school activities." #mural #art #arteducation #teenleaders #publicart #buildtogetherpawpaw
