I spent the weekend back in high school, a horrible fate made much, much better by New Orleans Charter Science & Math High School College Counselor Tammy A. Usher. She stayed with me through many hours of muraling, providing fun, food, and conversation. I can see why the students are so crazy about her! The mural commemorates students from SciHigh who successfully applied to colleges, and features the students' names and the schools they got into. I'm happy to report that the school plans to keep the wall through years of students, graduations, and acceptances, changing out the names to honor each new batch of high-achieving seniors.
Tammy took pictures throughout the whole process, including one with Cocoa & Chloe and one of me and her after mural completion!
This is the first time I've used house paints (graciously donated by the Sherwin Williams on St Charles and Harry's Ace Hardware on Magazine) to paint something other than single-color walls. I absolutely love them! Helps a lot that these were high-quality paints—smooth, vibrant, and opaque in one coat. Huge thanks to Sherwin Williams and Harry's Ace Hardware!!!
Hi, my name is Ally Burguieres. When I'm done painting I update this blog with new paintings, events, and news!
