Saul Ramirez, a senior, created and installed the new artwork in the main stairwell. Recently, staff and students have had an opportunity to have their photo taken for the new and improved mural near the main hallway stairwell.

“The staff and administrators have always asked me to spice up the stairwell with something different than the previous bland mural. Saul Ramirez came to me with this project for an personal portfolio but I thought it was the perfect idea to make it something bigger and better. It creates attention and gives personality” says Art Teacher Kristin Tyszkiewicz.

Many of the students and staff participated by making a funny face or posing in a way that characterizes them. It’s the real and uncut vision of students who make up the population of the school from all cultures, ethnic backgrounds, and races also mentioned by Mrs. Tyszkiewicz

“I used pictures from everyday people so the results are raw, humorous, soulful and real pieces of art that capture the spirit of individuals who normally go unseen. It reflects diversity but it also shows how we are all different but we are still the same”, say senior Saul Ramirez.

The mural took  two weeks to complete. Administrators and Mrs. Tyszkiewicz are discussing how often it should be changed by the years that go by. If you would like to be featured on the future mural contact Kristin Tyszkiewicz via email or classroom 236 for more details.
