R.B. Hudson students work on mural designs for artist space project

R.B. Hudson STEAM Academy students were hard at work Friday coming up with design ideas for a mural that will be done at a recently renovated building at 136 Maxey St.

The structure’s renovation began in September when ArtsRevive and Cougar Oil began working on the old auto shop building with plans to eventually turn the space into a work area for young artist in Selma and to develop their skills that will enhance their future.

ArtsRevive Intern Carey Fountain worked with the students and said the mural will be done mainly by the R.B. Hudson students.

“This is the first group I have met with,” he said. “We are going to have the students critique their own designs. I will come in the next few weeks and talk with them and have them vote on their favorite. I have two professional artists that will come in and help every Friday after the vote and guide them on actually making the mural.”
