Every Wednesday after school, National Art Honor Society, or Art Club, gathers its paintbrushes and meets upstairs to continue working on a mural-in-progress. Composed of art students from each grade, Art Club promotes and celebrates art in the school through community service projects. On the first floor, behind the library, the mural features ideal landscapes from around the world out of a window, like “a window to an ideal ecosystem.”
The mural was designed to highlight sustainability, preservation of the environment, and of course to “beautify the school.” Co-presidents and BHS seniors Marnie Halper and Tamar Honig add “We’re doing the mural because we want to leave a lasting impression on the school that shows how art can be used to promote an important issue like sustainability.”
The mural is not yet completed, but with Art Club’s diligence and enthusiasm, it should be done by the end of the school year. “It’s going to take a lot of hard work, but we’re really excited because the end product will be great,” Marnie assures. The mural is a valuable addition to the school as it will adorn the wall for many years to come, reminding students about the importance of preserving the environment for future generations.
