The Mural of Favorite Authors, Books, and Stories!

What does one do when asked to "do something" with the "movie" room.  If you are an educational entertainer, then you contact a mural artist to paint your favorite scenes from favorite stories all across the walls!  The idea started with a mural that was painted for me by the students at Hull Middle School a few years ago - which I was able to take home this past year after performing for them.  That is the highlight of the Edgar Allan Poe themed wall below.  The rest is from Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter.  Enjoy the pictures! 

The Edgar Allan Poe Wall.  Note the Hull Middle mural in the center!  The quote is from the Raven.

 Below is the Balrog from Lord of the Rings.

And here is Hogwarts!

The talented artist who painted these is Ashley Hartsock from Augusta, GA!  If you or your school are interested in having her do some mural work for home, media center, or anywhere else in your school, church, rooms, etc, then look below to see her contact info!  You may recognize the castle on her postcard!
