Fruita Middle School students are working with the City of Fruita Arts and Culture Board for a seven-day summer initiative consisting of a rafting trip, and an educational intensive art project.
The Wellspring Project is dedicated to addressing water usage in the west. A local sculptor and muralist is working with students to create two 75-foot murals along the riverfront trail. “They are working with me on these two big murals, and then they are working with a lot of local artists to create some great projects around water. It’s been so much fun working with them, I am so excited,” Pavia Justinian said.
Fruita Middle School student shared her thoughts on the mural. “I feel really proud of myself, its really special knowing that this is going to be here for a while and that people will se it,” Madison Rehburg said.
After the seven day Wellspring Project, Fruita Middle School students participated in events that offer them a taste of water conservation. The mural will represent the students hard work through the wellspring project while engaging the public to learn the importance of water usage.
