North Glendale Partners with Local Artist for Hands-On Learning

In September, St. Louis based muralist and artist Cbabi Bayoc visited North Glendale (NG) Elementary School in the Kirkwood School District. Bayoc partnered with NG art teacher Tom Butler to develop murals based on the school’s five key pledge words: cooperative, respect, responsible, honest and persevere. During their art classes, students in all grades experienced the artistic process and worked together to recognize and celebrate the differences of people inside and outside their school and community. The group then designed murals based on these pledge words and worked together to paint the murals. The result of their work is five murals that will be displayed around NG.


Pictured are NG students with Cbabi Bayoc. The group completed a mural on the theme of being “responsible.”


This visit from Bayoc to NG was made possible by the financial support of the North Glendale Parent Teacher Organization.
