While walking through Downingtown West, just about every hallway has an element of art that is eye-catching. Mostly painted by West students, the murals along the walls represent for many what it is like to be a student here or otherwise reference important people or events in history.

Carly Sarafinas (‘20) explains her love of art and how she would love to hang or build one of her paintings in West. She shares, “The art at West bring a pop of color to the hallways; every day I walk down the halls and they always grab my attention. As a student in a couple of art classes, I’d love to paint a mural for and at the school one day.”

Students at West get the recognition they deserve when administrators applaud their artwork. From the painting of the Whippet in the science wing to the astronaut surrounded by flowers near the woodshops, creative masterpieces can be found everywhere. The majestic and intricate artwork pieces bring a sense of color and joy to anyone who passes by them.

Next time you walk through the school, check out the artwork in the halls and stairways. I guarantee they will impress you!
