Kamiak Elementary Art Mural

PULLMAN – Kamiak Elementary, the newest school in Pullman has unveiled a new art mural on the school’s blacktop. According to Evan Hecker, the principle of Kamiak Elementary, hopes that this mural with help build the community of Kamiak Elementary and thanks to a special paint, help to be a teaching tool for the students. 

The paint used in the mural changes color when the temperature changes. This combination of chemistry and art can be used by teachers to teach kids about art, but also by showing how the mural changes color due to temperatures, teachers can explain to students the science of why that happens.

The Mural was made by WSU art students, and according to Joe Hedges, WSU assistant professor, working on this mural provided his students with experiences that will transfer over to their professional lives. The mural worked as a job site for the students, and in working on the mural the students learned about team work, the ability to communicate and to be self-directed.
