I created four mural paintings that will be installed within the Central High School dance studio in May. Each painting depicts students from the school, and their teacher, inside of fantasy and science-fiction stories to encourage students to dive into the world of reading. From defeating evil spaceships to limitless flights with dragons, these murals are a metaphor for courageous aspirations through a fantastical lens.
