Carlisle High School & Color Carlisle Hosts Artist-in-Residence

Color Carlisle is a small group of educators and community members who are working together to strengthen our community through creative action. The group has dreams of canvasing the city of Carlisle with murals and believe that our children and students are the future of the Carlisle community.  This Fall, a group of high school students who are enrolled the Portfolio art class at Carlisle High School will have the opportunity to create a mural which will be permanently installed on the side of St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Carlisle (near Memorial Park). The mural will be painted on parachute paper and then adhered to the wall. This allows the students to do a majority of the painting in the classroom.

In addition to the main group of students, we will open the mural up to other students at the High School and to the entire community of Carlisle. The artist, Ophelia Chambliss, will work primarily with the core group of students. The goal of the residency is for students to become experts and then involve and teach other students and community members the process of painting and installing a mural. Workshops are open to ALL community members which will help to increase the impact that the mural can have on strengthening and unifying our community. The students and teachers will work directly with other students and the community by hosting a workshop to teach the process to participants. Carlisle Area School District students, parents, and community members are invited to take part in the painting the mural on October 13th at the Homecoming football game.

The mural is being funded by the Bison Foundation, Jump Street, The Council for the Arts, and for donations from around the Carlisle Community.
