Art students create mural outside Beaumont Elementary

A North Knoxville elementary school has a new appearance thanks to some up and coming artists.

More than a dozen art students from Austin-East Performing Arts Magnet High School painted a mural on an outside wall of Beaumont Magnet Academy. The elementary school feeds into Austin-East.

The students studied artwork from Knoxville's Harlem Renaissance artist Beauford Delaney.

Teachers at Beaumont are excited about the new look.

"We really needed outdoor beautification here at Beaumont, because on the outside of our school, you probably had no idea that we are an arts magnet campus. It's filled with creativity and expression on the inside and we thought that the outside should reflect that," said art teacher Allison Pickett.

Beaumont's fifth grade art club also helped with the project.
