Alfredo Escobar, artist in residence at Berea College, has been helping fourth- and fifth-grade classes at Russell Cave Elementary School in Lexington paint a mural for the cafeteria.
The students are painting on individual pieces of plywood, which will be attached to the wall. That way the mural can be taken down if the school ever needs to do work on the cafeteria.
The students started working Feb. 8, and the mural is expected to be finished Tuesday.
Escobar is doing similar projects at other schools.
