Madison Central Avenue School Mural


The Central Avenue School in Madison, NJ took on a big artistic challenge this October.

The elementary school created a beautiful mural along many halls. The mural depicts the history of Madison and commemorates the 125th anniversary of Madison Borough. With over 40 volunteer parents and children, along with the guidance and help of a local artist Caren Olmsted, the colorful mural unfolded.

Monk's Home Improvements provided Central Avenue School with a labor donation to first paint the walls white to provide a clean canvas for the mural.  Travis Marion, who manages all of the Monk's Painting and Carpentry projects in Madison, along with his painting crew, spent a Saturday preparing the walls for the mural.

What amazing work by the volunteers and Ms. Olmsted! We're so proud to be a part of this beautiful project. We know we've helped to create a artistic and long lasting mural for generations of students at Central Ave School.
