Each year the 5th grade class at Swarthmore Rutledge Elementary in Swarthmore, PA does a collaborative art project. In 2008 I was the resident artist. We created a mural about the students' ideas about the environment. The mural is two walls in a stairwell. The first wall, between the 2nd and 3rd floors, shows an above ground scene, and the second wall, between the 1st and 2nd floors shows the imaginary underground scene. Each student participated in painting the large picture and contributed either a leaf or a star that was an individual creation.
