| June 15, 2017

Draper Middle School teacher Steve Blais and his art students created their own pair of angel wings to share with the rest of the school, aiming to send an uplifting message to students.

The Global Angel Wings Project started in 2012, when Los Angeles-based artist Colette Miller painted a pair of angel wings as a unique piece of street art, providing city dwellers with a respite from commercial advertisements that lined the streets and reminding them that they were all “angels of Earth.” Since 2012, colorful wings have made their mark in countries spanning the globe, continuing to spread a message of positivity.

On June 15, the painted wings were put on display in front of the Draper cafeteria, allowing students to step in front of the canvas for a photo as they passed by, bringing the project’s concept to life in their own school hallways.
