Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools students will watch the installation of a mural at Atherton Mill & Market Friday morning that they created.

The 135 students are participants in the Digital Media Literacy camp through the Arts & Science Council in partnership with CMS' After-School Enrichment Program.

The students, from rising first graders to high school seniors, used iPads and digital cameras at Atherton Mill & Market, 7th Street Market and local farms to show the importance of farm-to-table food.

They used their material to create a mural promoting healthy life choices.

The mural will become a permanent fixture at Atherton.
