The 3rd graders at BES have been studying murals in reading, so they decided to take a field trip downtown to see a couple of local murals which were painted by Mr. Jeff Vickery, a local artist. With the assistance of the Blountstown's Police Department to keep them safe, they walked to Mr. Frank Snowden's Survey Office, and then across to view the mural on the wall of the Diamond Corner. When they returned to school, they listened to Mr. Vickery explain how he created the beautiful murals up town.
    After lunch, they decided to create their own "imaginative" murals using sidewalk chalk. Who knows - some of our 3rd graders may grow up to be famous artists one day!!!
