Taylor Wettach supports Art for Peace

Source: Muscatine JournalMUSCATINE, Iowa — The moment Muscatine High School sophomore Raul Canahui brought his original artwork before the MHS Student Council Tuesday, words of admiration filled the room.

Canahui came before his peers to ask if he could create a mural on a wall in the fine arts corridor of MHS.

“This is what I have in mind,” he said as he unfurled a large pencil etching of teenagers circling a fountain with the word PEACE written in block letters at its base. (...)

Council member Taylor Wettach, a sophomore, moved that the Council approve helping fund materials for the project and the Council unanimously approved the motion. (...)

Canahui, who came to Muscatine from his homeland of Guatemala three years ago, has been drawing since he was 3 years old. He is considering a career as an illustrator for children’s books.
