‘Never Give Up’ local students help design school mural that shares life lessons


MADISON, Tenn. (WTVF) — A handful of kids got the chance to leave their mark on their school, literally. Amqui Elementary in Madison has a new mural, where a small group of kids got to help share life lessons for current and future students.

They range from never giving up, don’t judge a book by its cover, be cool and more. The kids had the help of the artist C3 to create the mural.

“This whole entire project is called ‘Spoken Graffiti’ and after the shooting at Covenant School we really really wanted to do something to show the power that lies in school but take away from that because school shootings have been happening,” Project Manager Karimah Taylor said.

This mural was done with a grant. The are murals at two other schools aside from Amqui: Warner and Madison.

To see what the kids helped come up with watch the video above.

Nashville artist’s colorful crayon craft has been a true gift

“Austin Pollack shows us the really cool art of Nashville artist, Herb Williams, whose work is featured all over the world. What really caught my attention was his story of being lost and found through his work after a personal tragedy. Heartbreaking and beautiful.”

-Carrie Sharp

I loved the Crayon Artist story that Austin Pollack shared on NC5 This Morning at 9. He finds peace and therapy in immersing into his creativity, which helps him deal with emotional pain, I thought his art and his heart were beautiful.”
