Traveling Mural Project
The Traveling Mural project began in 2018. Last year, over 150 schools from around the country were involved. This year, we decided to join!
Westbrook High School was a part of group 35(there were 38 groups)
With the help of Ms. Hourihan and her art students, we created this mural. We had students and staff sign our mural with our SPIRIT Motto. Once all students and staff signed our mural Ms. Hourihan cut the mural and we sent it to the 9 schools part of our group. The schools in our group were from Texas, Hawaii, Canada, New Jersey, Missouri, Kansas and Maryland. Pictured below (left) is our completed mural (right) is the Traveling Mural.
