Billiken Teacher Corps Murals

I created a series of murals for the Billiken Teacher Corps, a service program in which teachers live in community, teach in low-income schools, and earn their masters in education. The program is through Saint Louis University, and the first cohort of teachers chose the "Suscipe" prayer to be painted onto the wall of their community's chapel, as well as the "do small things with great love" quote by Mother Teresa. The Billiken Teacher Corps logo was painted onto the wall above each teacher's bookshelf in their communal study area.
