Village Oaks’ hallways are alive with art – with VIDEO

The students at Village Oaks Elementary now have a different view as they walk down the hallways of their school. Artist Sara Russell was hired to paint murals up and down the hallways of some of kids’ favorite characters from books.


The hallways at Village Oaks Elementary will have a more kid-like feel to them this year thanks to the work of a local artist.

Sara Russell, the parent of a pair of former students, was hired this summer by the Parent Teacher Organization to spice up the walls with murals that were customized to the school.

She spent the last two weeks armed with painting supplies and books, and the finished product is sure to draw rave reviews from the students when they make their way down the halls for the first time on Sept. 8.

“They were just screaming for murals as far as I’m concerned,” Russell said of the plain, white walls at the school. “The kids will be super excited to see them.”
