PORT McNEILL – Cheslakees Elementary needs help from the community to complete an ambitious mural project.

PORT McNEILL – Cheslakees Elementary needs help from the community to complete an ambitious mural project.

The parent advisory committee (PAC) is collecting photos of students, staff and events held at the school both past and present. The photos will be arranged into a large wall mural that will look like one large image from a distance, but will actually be made of hundreds of smaller images.

“The Cheslakees PAC would like to include as many students and events in the collection as possible, so we would like all current and past Cheslakees students and families to contribute their quality photos to the project,” said PAC chair Penny Mills in a letter to the Gazette. “The PAC will collect the photos during April and May only, as we would like to have this project completed by the end of the school year.”

Cheslakees PAC will have a table at the Port McNeill Saleswomen (PMS) Mothers Day Showcase, being held on May 7 at the Curling Club 11a.m. until 3p.m.

“We will have  examples of the photo mosaic style, consent forms, a computer and scanner so come along and bring your memory stick or CD and photos,” said Mills.

Due to the public nature of this mural  each child whose photo is involved in the mural must have written parental/guardian consent and each contributing photographer must sign an image release and consent form. The forms are available at Cheslakees School during school hours.

The PAC is working with Strait Shooter Photography to develop the mural. Digital photos should be 240 or 300 dpi or straight from the camera. Prints can be scanned.
