SYCAMORE CANYON ELEMENTARY // SANTEE
Mural Artist: Lucía Sánchez
The Sycamore Canyon Mural Club of 2022 painted this mural designed by multi-disciplinary artist Lucía Sánchez. This piece serves to welcome all to a colorful and transformative campus. The participating student artists played a direct role in the design of this mural. As a group, they decided collaboratively on different themes and images to help represent Sycamore Canyon. Various metamorphoses are seen throughout this mural: A caterpillar to a butterfly. A cub to a cougar. An egg to a chicken. A sycamore seed to a full-grown tree. These transformations reminds us that change is constant and that school is a place for growth. Hills, creeks, and lakes of the Santee landscape make up the soothing background. Morning turns to day and day turns to night. The big night sky reminds us all to look up and see what we can find up there: comets, planets, constellations, and an anchor to honor the military families of Sycamore Canyon School. It reminds us that any dream we can imagine, we can achieve.
