Here is the finished mural in two photos, with the dedication portion on the nearby arch. I did my best to let their work stand alone without "tweeking" it much. It is hard to resist the urge to polish it, but I want them to walk in years from now and remember when they "did that".
Here are more photos of the students in action! This was my best group of kids so far... they were really dedicated. I have to also give credit to their regular teacher, Mary Hannon, for understanding and guiding them so well. She provided me with a lot of insight into their personalities.
As some of you may know, I am behind in uploading photos since my old computer crashed. Here are some from January of this year, when I began working with students at Warren Easton High School on another grant-funded mural project in conjunction with the New Orleans Chapter of the Buffalo Soldiers.
