Sierra Students Celebrate "Mariachi De Azusa" With Newest Mural
Sierra High students are proud of their latest mural which is a tribute to the Mariachi de Azusa after school program. The mural involving art and music will serve as a backdrop that will travel with the program as they perform around the San Gabriel Valley. The 8' x 20' canvas mural includes the Azusa City Hall, fountain and auditorium; it is surrounded by flowers, cut paper banners and musical instruments. The Sierra High Artists titled the mural "City Hall Fiesta" and worked 1 period a day for 11 weeks with direction of Art Instructor Elaine Stricklin, to design, paint and finish their artwork.
