• Tulsa students turn graffiti into wall mural


    TULSA, Okla. - Students in a north Tulsa neighborhood took matters into their own hands to beautify their community.

    The Springdale Elementary “Changemakers” didn’t like the wall in front of their school covered in graffiti.

    The group, along with the nonprofit Disrupt, partnered with the students to transform the tagged wall into a work of art.

    Students from first to sixth grade came together, selling magnets to raise money for the paint.

    The students designed a mural and spent three weeks painting it.

    On Thursday afternoon, the school revealed the mural and celebrated with a block party.

    The students involved said they volunteered to do this to make their community a better place, and they’re proud of the hard work they put in to accomplish it.
