AHS Music Wing Makeover Project Mr. Hoffman has challenged our Graphic Arts class to design murals for the Music Wing of Albany High School. Our objective is to create mural designs for this environment that will be appropriate for a high school music wing, visually appealing to the eye and reflective of the excitement of our music program. The designs will be juried and selected by the Music Department.
