Art and Science Unite in New Da Vinci Science Center Mural Project Led by Local Teacher

Exciting News: Students will kick off mural painting for new Da Vinci Science Center in Allentown!

Carla Majczan, a Bethlehem Area School District art teacher, was chosen to lead the project of creating a colorful mural at the new Da Vinci Science Center in downtown Allentown. She developed lesson plans for art and science that inspired 300 students from Lehigh Valley Children’s Centers to create art and designs based on those plans. After sorting through boxes of student artwork and ideas, Carla finalized the mural design based on the children’s drawings.

The students will begin painting the mural at the Judith Chase Early Learning Center gym on Chew Street. The finished mural, which covers a 120-foot long wall, will be installed at the new Science Center in late May or early June. The Science Center is set to open on May 22nd, showcasing the colorful and imaginative artwork created by local students under the guidance of Carla Majczan.

Carla’s passion for art and her ability to connect with students inspired them to create something beautiful that would become a permanent part of their community. This project not only brought joy to the students but also taught them valuable lessons about teamwork, creativity, and perseverance.
