“To the staff and students at the Crscent Leadership Academy

The concept below is a sketch of what I envision for the cafeteris mural at the Crescent Leadership Academy in New Orleans. This was on based on how I interpret the mission and vision of this academy.From left to right will be a crescent moon against a dark background that lightens has it moves to the right. This crescent symbol forms a “C” followed by a “L” and an “A” that is an abreviation for “ Crescent Leadership Academy. The “L” moves forward into an arrow to emphasize Leadership. The “A” uplift’s the dominant graduate’s arm who is holding his diploma and who repesents a leader. Following behind Him are more graduates in a proud formation. The arrow points to a beautiful butterfly, a symbol of transformation used in most cultures. The colorful butterfly will leave behind rays of color to represent it’s influence on the world. As a symbol of growth and health, a plant emerges into flowering bud.”
