APS students combine art, health for mural

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Students at sunset view elementary in Albuquerque are helping an art teacher paint her 19th mural by combining two passions art and health.

Art teacher Sarita Birkley has helped students in 10 APS schools create murals that celebrate nature, health and diversity.

She works with students, parent organizations and school communities to create pieces like these.

The principal of sunset view says the students come to work on the project during their lunch.
