Artist, students team up on school mural


Camas — Local artist Elida Field worked with students on a collaborative jungle-themed mural at Prune Hill Elementary School over the summer. She taught each grade level how to create a different jungle plant or animal, such as flowers, beetles, butterflies, chameleons, frogs, toucans, macaws and fish. Elsa Harris, Field’s niece, painted the background for the mural in the main entrance to the gym and cafeteria at Prune Hill. The students’ work was incorporated into the mural. The mural will be officially unveiled today. “When we create collaborative murals, the kids love coming back and looking for their artwork; the frog or the beetle that they painted is up there somewhere for them to find,” Field said in a release from the district.
