Del Mar Hills Academy collaborates with its first ‘Artist in Residence’

Students paint alongside Roberto Salas in the developing mural.

A local artist is joining forces with the students at Del Mar Hills Academy to create a piece of public art, as well as an interactive educational tool.

San Diego-based Roberto Salas has produced several public murals and site-specific sculptures across the U.S. and abroad,  and now he has become the “Artist in Residence” at Del Mar Hills Academy.

Salas recently started collaborating with 5th and 6th grade students, designing a space-themed mural that integrates art and science standards. He will incorporate the students’ ideas and work with them to produce a professional-quality, public art piece that will inspire additional art, science, math and writing lessons at every grade level for the entire school. Students will learn aspects of research, design, preparation and the execution of mural painting.

Salas is also the director of the Centro Artistico y Cultural, in the El Paso, Texas-Juarez, Mexico area; he earned his MFA from the University of California, San Diego, and his BFA at the University of New Mexico. More information about Salas can be found at robertosalas.com.
