Sacred Heart Prep students make tape murals of Ukrainian refugees

by Linda Hubbard on March 24, 2022


Sacred Heart Prep art students were hard at work yesterday making tape murals of Ukranian refugees in the Campbell Center lobby.

Students used painters’ tape to pinch, pull, and manipulate the material to achieve an outcome similar to line drawing. The process is done entirely free-hand, with no pre-sketching.

Note the actual photos of refugees the students used to make their drawings.

Here are a few photos of their work courtesy of the school.

I happened to walk by these artworks today. They stopped me in my tracks. I had to take a moment to connect with the images and how they relate a very true tale of Humanity.
