Youth Leader Board Sheridan High School 2021 Mural Project
Sheridan as well as local muralist Clair Lausten. Youth from Englewood helped in the early stages of designing the mural, and youth from Sheridan continued to add to the design later in the project. The mural is located inside Sheridan High School outside of the library doors. This mural represents what youth are proud of in their community and what they find important to them.
Youth Leader Board Update 6.16.21
This evening youth in the community popped in to show off their creativity!! The youth leader board is currently working on painting a community mural inside Sheridan High School (SHS). Those who attended got to paint their own mural and share ideas about what should be included on the SHS mural with our muralist Clair from Clairssacredspaces.
For more information about the community mural and how to participate check out Youth - We Make The Change .
