This Gallery page features a stencilling
project that took place at William Allen High School
in Allentown PA. The Spanish teacher hated looking at
the bare walls and felt they needed colour. Her students were
doing Mythology, folklore and literature of the Spanish speaking nations. Many of the stories are Aztec, Mayan and Incan based.
The text below
are extracts from letters written written by the pupils. Click on any of the
following extracts and you will be able to read some of the wonderful letters written by the pupils
involved in this project. Click on any of the pictures to go to our Aztec catalogue page.

and tradition of Spanish speaking nations through artistic works"...More

end the school year. Instead of reading another story or writing another paper.
Who would pass that up?"...More
"When I heard of the crazy idea of painting the whole classroom, I thought she was insane"...More
"The project was fun, improved the room, and gave us time to
talk to the other classmates that we usually don’t talk to"...More

OH MAN!!!! You need to use your head for the creativity"...More
"When I was told we would be painting the room, I got a big smirk on my face
Painting is one of my favorite activities to do and at that I was going to be doing
it in school in Spanish class at that"...More
