Playground Mural

La Mesa Dale’s beautiful new 192-foot playground mural was painted by Grossmont College Art students under the leadership of Jennifer Bennett, Professor of Drawing and Painting. Over the last semester, Bennett’s art class developed the idea for the mural and spent 4 days on campus during October Break, painting it on our playground wall.

When staff, students and parents first saw the colorful painting, the reactions were unanimously excited.  Students who walk by the mural on their way to class in the morning couldn’t help but stare and smile. 

In a day of TikTok challenges promoting destruction, artistic beautification brings joy to our students, their families, and our staff who get to see it every day. It fosters a sense of pride in our school and shows students just how much we care about them.
