A retired Asheville art teacher shares her talent with students at her old school.

"I like that she turned a purple wall into a colorful mural of ecosystems and animals," said William, a fourth-grader.

Victoria Burnette-Hall retired from Ira B. Jones Elementary a couple of years ago and began working on a mural soon after.

Fourteen months later, the project shows many of the habitats and animals found around the world.

So far it's a big hit with students.

"There is the anteater., He likes to eat ants and has a very long tongue," said another student, Roux.

Burnette-Hall plans to create a book with games and facts about the ecosystems, so that classrooms can add more to the wall, with material that she's providing.

"So it will be an interactive wall, soon," she said.

The Jones Elementary PTO kicked in money to help Burnette-Hall pay for the paints for the project.
