Recent grads design and create a mural for Wheeler High School’s Autism Sensory Room.
Over the summer, Sakaiya Chanthavongsa and Sarah Fernandes, two outgoing 2020 seniors, completed their portion of the Autism Sensory Room mural at Wheeler High School with the support of their art teacher, William Rembert. The purpose of the mural is to create a calming and inviting environment for autistic students.
Their hard work and great design completed the first step in the space. Sensory spaces provide an interactive atmosphere where students are surrounded by tactile experiences, movement, lighting effects and other interactive elements that engage the five senses. Two of the mural’s main quotes are, “creativity takes courage” and “in a world where you can be anything, be kind.” The inspiring mural is a record of these alumni’s artistic legacy at Wheeler High School.
