Murals by BMS students now on display on Main Street & BMS hallways

Artwork by students of the Batesville Community School Corporation were installed on

Main Street in Batesville through the collaborative effort of the Batesville Community

Education Foundation and two of its corporate sponsors. BCEF board member Jama

Linkel-Cleghorn is the project coordinator. Dubbed “Art on Main,” the new program

featured artwork from students from all four BCSC schools over the course of a year.

Art teachers had the latitude to determine whether the art project for that school will be

a group effort or will be selected from individual entries. This school year’s theme,

chosen by BCEF board members, is “Bulldogs for Life.” 

BMS participated in Mrs. DiMuzio’s Art classes in both 6th and 7th grades. The students

learned Lettering, colored pencil blending and Graphic Design. With these skills they

created their own designs within the project parameters. The staff of BMS then picked

which one they wanted to represent BMS for the downtown mural. The top 6 student works

represented in MURALS installed in the new BMS wing. With the BULLDOG theme the student

works brighten the long white halls. The Murals are said to last 10yrs inside so this is a

wonderful option for us and it is removable!
