Donations sought for school mural project
DOVER — Two students at Dover Elementary School are hoping to beautify their school as part of their International Baccalaureate project.
Sixth-grader Breck Bensin and Kelsey Thayer worked on an IB project entitled, "How Graffiti is a Form of Self Expression" for their unit on How We Express Ourselves.
For their last year in this school, they wanted to leave a positive mark/message behind. Jason Naylor, a graffiti muralist, has offered to paint a mural on the school wall facing the school playground over summer break. The students are doing this project to show that kids of all ages can make a difference in their community.
The theme of the wall is kindness and tolerance. Donation are being sought to help fund the project. All proceeds will be used for materials to paint the mural and accommodations; Naylor is donating his time and not asking to be compensated.
Art teacher Jennifer Tallini worked with girls on this project. She created a Go Fund Me Page at gofundme.com/doverschoolwall.
Donations need to be made by Saturday, June 15.
