Students at The Binah School, an all-girls Jewish middle and high school in Sharon, are creating a community mural on panels that will be displayed on the building at Memorial Park Beach. Newton-based art therapist and community muralist Tova Speter is working with students to create a mural that celebrates inclusion of people with disabilities, something the girls are learning about, she said. The design includes a tree with branches forming the shape of a heart, and leaves that are human figures. The girls visited with students from Perkins School for the Blind and with adults who have developmental disabilities to work on panels that will become part of the mural. They plan to hold a community painting day in Sharon. “It’s very exciting to us that this will be the town’s first public community mural,” she said. The mural is expected to be installed by summer.
