Marsha Patterson, North Forsyth High School’s art teacher and her Painting I, Painting II, and Painting III students have been painting away at a mural for Chestatee Elementary School.

Using acrylic and other mixed mediums, students at North are trying to bring the outdoors in with these paintings of plants and animals.

“We only hope to make art more visible and give rise to creative minds of young students,” Patterson says. She aspires to enhance the beauty of the school with this mural and draw more attention to the art classes in middle and high school.

Students in Painting I, Painting II and Painting III also love helping their teacher work on the mural panels to inspire these young children.
