AHA Students Work with Artist on Massive Mural

Artist Roberto Salas and art teacher Jessica Krichels guided students in creating a mural that reflects their cultural heritage.

About 160 students at Atrisco Heritage Academy spent two weeks last spring on a mural under the guidance of artist Roberto Salas and art teacher Jessica Kritchels that now hangs in the cafeteria of the state's largest high school.

The project was funded by a Horizon Grant from the APS Education Foundation. The goal of the project was to create a mural with cultural significance and for students to be part of the making of a large scale, permanent art work for their school.

Every aspect of the mural was done by students.
