Students in Mrs. Watson's Art 1-4 classes transformed the cafeteria lobby into Mid Winter Blues using painter's tape.  The art, using only blue painter's tape, was inspired by artist Tony Feher and adapted by Stephen Watson at the University of Alabama.  Sloan Hendrix High School students incorporated the Principles of Design and the Elements of Art creating large scale, translucent pieces, illuminating the lobby.

FYI:  Blue painter's tape was invented by 3M in 1988 after inventing masking tape at the start of the Depression.  ScotchBlue Painters Tape resists UV light and has a longer masking time than masking tape.

According to an article on the American Chemistry Society website, when American consumers were polled in 1985, they voted Scotch tape the most indispensable household product.
