A year-long project culminated in a colorful display on the walls at Oak Hill Elementary School this March. Artist Gayle Mangan Kassal collaborated with Oak Hill art teacher Dana Henstrand and every student to complete the stunning mural.
“This all fed into creating a wonderful storyline of the acorn growing into the mighty oak,” the artist said. “As they enter the school as pre-k, they grow into fifth-graders. All the students enjoyed the concept and it also became a subtle message to care for our environment and its pollinators.”
