Reach for the Stars Mural

Ms. Goldin's art students worked closely with officers of the Los Angeles Police Department, Pacific Division, and artists Zander and Terrence Stasse to design and paint a beautiful new mural on the PE side near Palms Boulevard in 2018. The mural is themed, "Reach for the Stars." This work was part of the Los Angeles Community Street Art Initiative, which builds friendships between Los Angeles children and police officers through the creation of public art.

Enjoy this time-lapse video of the painting project!
