I AM the Storm mural at SHS

Artists- R.E. Wall, Margaret Dewar and Summit High School Students

 I Am the Storm was painted by Summit High School Students in the Fall of 2018. Art teacher Chandra Hemminger called on the Mural Mice to guide the students through the process. The mural was funded by the Flagstaff Beautification and Public Art Commission with BBB funding. Special thanks to the Flagstaff Unified School District for supporting the project.

The mural was painted in the fall of 2017. The global climate was extremely volitile. There were a half dozen hurricanes in the Atlantic, fires were consuming the Northwest and Callifornia late in the season, and nuclear tensions were climaxing with the U.S. and North Korea. These subjects dominated the news and drew the students to find inspiration from them. The mural project offered a positive creative outlet for the students and "I Am the Storm" was born.

It all began with a brainstorm and a few designs. The wall was prepped and the image was drawn out. As always, the painting process was the best part.
