Senior Ann McGehrin recently wrapped up the first half of her mural at Milford High School. She began the project in mid-February after having presented her plans to the School Board and administration for approval. McGehrin’s creative side came out when she decided to “leave her mark on Milford High.”
“This is my first mural, so it’s cool when people stop by and watch while I’m working,” she said.
McGehrin has been painting the mural on a large white wall in between the lobby and front office which was remodeled last summer. When she presented her first sketch, the MHS administration asked for it to be a little more school-spirited, so now the mural will include a Buccaneer on a ship with a colorful sunset in the background.
The project, which will cost about $65, is being funded partly by the annual art budget and partly by the administration. With three art classes every day, McGehrin has devoted most of her time, including staying some after school, to this project. She believes she should be able to complete the entire mural by the end of April. The new art in the building has been met with excitement by the students and faculty.
“It’s a lot less boring than a blank wall, and she’s an awesome artist from what we can see,” said MHS junior Dalton Pikus.
As for her future plans, McGehrin wants to major in interior design at Delaware College of Art and Design in Wilmington to continue her artistic career.
