Marco Hernandez, a sophomore at Taft High School, washes tile on a 30'-by-12' mural near the entrance to the school. The project was started by last year's art classes. The mosaic is made with ceramics students brought from home - marble, broken glass, pottery, etc. The flower designs represent cultural plants or flowers of students' heritages. You can see more of the impressive work here.
