Prior to attending registration for his junior year at South Oldham High School, Austin Woodbury was hard at work pulling painters tape off of the newly painted orange walls in Kenwood Station Elementary School’s foyer. Woodbury and a team of volunteers had spent the evening before applying the paint with the help of two scaffoldings, donated by Jeremy Bosco of Robert Mattingly & Sons construction and McKenzie Synthetics. While Woodbury removed the tape, a friend applied a fresh coat of glaze to a painting of a horse on a nearby library wall.

The new artwork adorning the walls of Kenwood Station is the end result of Woodbury’s Eagle Scout project. He has spent the last month at Kenwood with a team of volunteers making his designs come to life. Though art is just a hobby for Woodbury, he knew he wanted to use his talents in design as a way to enhance his Eagle Scout project. “I’ve always been good at art and creating designs. I thought it would be a good idea to use art in my project,” said Woodbury. “First I was thinking of doing art work at hospitals but it was too difficult to get into a hospital because they are a little more restrictive. My mom came to Kenwood and found out that Mr. Moore wanted murals so I approached him with the concept.”
