Inspiring a change

Senior Cameron Strickland was selected out of countless artistically inclined students to paint the mural for the foreign language area that’s outside the classes in an attempt to incorporate all the foreign exchange students and the languages that we learn.

The mural will add a vibrant touch to the dim and plain white area that even lacks posters.

“It is going to be a great improvement to the area as a whole,” said Ms. Price, who is one of the four Spanish teachers.

Although not much can be told about what the finished product will look like, students will surely be amazed.

“I can’t tell you what it will exactly look like, but I can tell you it will surprise you,” said Strickland.

Strickland says the geographical features the cultures of the people who speak the languages in his mural but he also intends on incorporating as many as cultures he can into it.

The paint itself can be expensive because just to start up it costs about $70. The mural will also only be on about a 160 square foot surface.

“This is by far the biggest thing I’ve ever painted,” said Strickland about his large mural.

The amazing part about this story is that Strickland is doing this all by himself, which is why it will take until  February to be completed.

It has not been confirmed on whether he will get paid for his painting, but he is still open to complete the job without any creativity left behi

All of the teachers are looking forward to how it will look once it is finished.

“I’m excited and looking forward to the final product,” said Ms. Torres, the foreign language department director.
