Countdown to the Cafeteria Mural is on!

Artist Jen Swan will be working with students in the National Art Honor Society this year to paint a mural in the cafeteria, funded by the Southborough Education Foundation. Jen’s portfolio includes murals at the Assabet Valley Collaborative, Worcester Arts Magnet School, Claremont Academy, National Grid, and many more. Jen studied at Rhode Island School of Design, and also teaches at the Worcester Think Tank, where arts and science come together as perfectly as peanut butter and jelly. Our collaboration will begin in October, with sketching on the wall to start sometime this winter, and completion by May. Many thanks to the Southborough Education Fund for your generous support!
