Students Unveil Beautiful Piece They Created

Thanks to a grant from the Bullis Parents Association, the Lower School came together to create a beautiful wall mosaic that was unveiled recently in South Hall.

Led by artist Arturo Ho, the students spent eight weeks in November and December creating the piece. They began with individual sketches by each student depicting what "Lead the Bullis Way" meant to them. Mr. Ho then worked with a representative team of students to bring all the drawings together into a collaborative design which the students then colored. Finally the design was transferred to a mosaic board on which the students laid the tiles.

Every student took part in the project, learning from Mr. Ho and with additional guidance by their art teacher Lindy Russell-Heymann. At the unveiling of the piece—attended by all students, teachers and some parents—Head of School Dr. Gerald L. Boarman and Associate Head Dr. Michael Reidy congratulated the students on their hard work, creativity and vision. "You all did more than lead the Bullis way," said Dr. Reidy. "You have left a lasting legacy here to help future students understand what it means so they can all be good community citizens."
