We hoped to squeeze out some inspiration from Wade with an interview, but he only got a few words in as he was repeatedly pulled away to assist students.
That was all the inspiration we needed. It’s hard not to admire someone who invests so deeply in our students' growth.
Wade shared that the hardest part of the mural is first day. Students agreed, saying the most challenging part was the prep.
Clean. Prime. Stencil. Project. Trace.
Student and mural painter Lainey Weix compared it to an artist getting to know their canvas.
Once the wall is prepped, Wade said the rest is “gravy.”
