“It was a really fun experience, painting and designing something that everyone can see and enjoy,” said Taylor Kelso, a freshman at Berkeley High School.
During February 18-20, 2023, the BHS mural club painted a mural aimed towards promoting re-use at BHS according to the club’s president, Carina Nottingham.
“We were inspired by the beautiful Bay Area and the soon-to-be BHS Re-Use Center, as well as the hills along CA highways with wind turbines,” said Nottingham.
According to Kelso, the reuse center at BHS is going to be a place on campus to get school supplies and textbooks and clothes like a thrift store.
“I love art, and I feel like mural painting is a great way to use your voice and leave a mark in a way that a lot of times we don’t really get a chance to,” said Nottingham. “I like being able to share things through art and painting this mural, we definitely got to say things about reuse and climate and the beautiful place we live.”
