High-schoolers complete MURAL in Windermere

Over the course of summer, eight students from several schools in Central Florida completed a 12-by-36-foot wall mural. The Jamuna Community Center in Windermere now has a colorful scenic mural in the style of Madhubani folk art. For the art project, the high schoolers received a voluntary-hours certificate.
The students were guided by Sanjana Deshmukh, who has a MFA (Masters of Fine Arts, India) and MEd (Masters in education from Loyola College of Baltimore). She is a freelance artist and a guest lecturer at University of Central Florida for the Cultural Traditions Of India class. She serves as a mentor and coach to students who are interested in art.

The students involved with the mural project are Nagamadhumitha Chintalapati, grade 9, Orlando Science High School; Anwesha Joshi, grade 8, Sanford Middle; Trisha Gokhale, grade 9, Seminole High; Moksha Chintalapati, grade 7, Orlando Science Middle; Tanvi Kaisare, grade 12

Winter Springs High; Sanjoli Umrao, grade 10, Oviedo High; Gargi Paranjape, grade 10, Oviedo High; and Anya Bollineni, grade 7, Orlando Science Charter.
