Students in Mrs. McNaul’s art classes will have the opportunity this year to design a new color scheme for the room and then paint it.

Mrs. McNaul and her students are giving the art room a new look this school year.

The first project for all four high school art classes is a design project where they will design and paint the walls of the art room. The project is set to be completed this week because there are so many students pitching in.

For years, Mrs. McNaul, said, she has wanted to paint the art room because she has been stuck with seafoam green floors that match the walls. She has asked the maintenance staff to do it but never knew what color scheme she wanted.

Mrs. McNaul said the project is a fresh start to the school year, and teaches the students something they will use in their adult lives.

According to Mrs. McNaul the seafoam green allows for a very limited color palate since not many colors go with it. This year Mrs. McNaul has been looking at different dark blues and yellows along with neutrals such as light tans. The goal for the new colors is to make the room feel more welcoming for the students and reflect light so art can be made properly.

Last week, students got to design how the key colors will be used to make the room more interesting than just one color on the entire wall. All high school art classes will submit their designs, two for the large room and two for the small room, and one will be accepted.

All of these classes will help paint, and the work will be divided among them so everyone works throughout the entire class time. The students will be taught a practical art by learning how to prep the walls, prep for painting, taping off the walls, and how to protect surfaces. They will also learn how to use a cutting-in brush, a roller, and how to get coverage on textured walls.

The project should be completed this week depending on how detailed the design is, and if paint has to dry before putting on tape.
