"Alice in Wonderland"
Jaine Ahring created the oil-on-canvas murals “Alice in Wonderland” and “Mother Goose” in 1937. The works were created with Federal Art Project funding. In The New Deal in Orange County, California (The History Press, 2014), Charles Epting writes, “Given the scarcity of New Deal public art in Orange County, Ahring’s paintings are quite remarkable” (p. 38).
Both murals are located in the school’s main hallway.
