The mural that says “Los Barriles” at the entrance of town was painted by 11 of our students with the assistance of funds from many LB residents and on the ground painting help by volunteers. This was our first mural in town and a huge success.}

Brainstorm with your child:


What animals live here?

What events do we celebrate?

What is special about our town?

Who are the people here?

What are the jobs people have here?


Good Luck! We are looking forward to seeing the designs the children come up with. For inspiration we have included several murals here on this page from other cities! Just scroll down!
