UT Tyler Education and Psychology Murals Nearing Completion!

Students from the UT Tyler Art Department have been working on murals in the HPR building for the Department of Education and Psychology since January. There are five murals in progress, each one utilizing a unique artistic approach to communicate a different core value of education or psychology. Lauren Alexander, Veronica Vinaja, Jordan Bennett, Kiley Kennedy, Brady Collings, Mak Mahloch, Karissa Smith, and Joshua Crockett are all undergraduate studio art majors working under the guidance of Alexis Serio, Professor of Studio Art at UT Tyler, and Adrienne Stine, a graduate painting student. Grace Richardson and Maggie Pierce also worked on a mural in the spring, but they have since graduated. Grace is continuing to work with the mural team this fall while Maggie is at graduate school out of state. The move from in-person to online classes in the spring hindered the progress of these murals but the art students are back this fall working harder than ever to complete their masterpieces!
