Some of the students who worked on the Our Lady of Guadalupe mural gather under their creation.

Saint Francis High School students have produced yet another large work of art to grace the walls of the school campus, this time creating a mural depicting Our Lady of Guadalupe. Their work is incredibly eye-catching due to the mural’s non-traditional look and vibrant colors.

Students in two advanced drawing classes joined together to produce this work of art, which was completed with each student drawing a section.

“I’m very proud of my students for their hard work and dedication on the newest mural,” said art teacher Sal Gaeta.

“They were excited to create a huge work of art together, which formed a spiritual bond between these students. They had a sense of not wanting to let each other down.”

The mural is the third larger-than-life artwork to be installed in the school cafeteria, Malcolm Center. Mr. Gaeta’s students completed “The Last Supper” and “The San Damiano Cross” last year as similar collaborative projects.

“Such artwork plays an important role on campus because images can speak to us in ways that words cannot,” said Chaplain Father Tony Mancuso.
