SAN ALTOS ELEMENTARY // LEMON GROVE
Mural Artist: Hanna Gundrum
The 6th grade class of 2022 at San Altos Elementary helped paint and design this 4-wall mural. As a legacy gift to the whole school community, these four walls celebrate growth, exploration, and transformation. Led by artist Hanna Gundrum, the mural spans the four main buildings in the center of campus, adding a joyful and colorful backdrop to student activities. The hummingbird and Yin-Yang motif were taken directly from student design input and also serve as a reminder of the importance of peaceful balance. In honor of San Altos’ tradition of the yearly release and study of monarch butterflies, the butterfly on Wall 2 symbolizes constant growth and transformation. The school mascot, a coyote, can be seen exploring the desert landscape in Wall 1. Surrounded by stars and the moon, this mural art reminds all students to keep exploring and to keep going after their dreams.
