The first of The heART Project's murals, The Creativity Takes Courage 30 foot mosaic mural was created by over two hundred Fox Lane High School (FLHS) students, faculty and staff in the Fine Arts wing. The Matisse quote, "Creativity Takes Courage" is a focal point and inspiration of the mural made from donated tile and mirror from the local community. The National Art Honor Society at FLHS attended after school workshops on cutting mirror, and breaking tile, as well as creating clay hearts for the mural. The FLHS Visual Arts department rolled up their sleeves and supported the project from start to finish, leading their students in creating a collaborative public artwork.

This mural would not be possible without the instruction, constant support, encouragement and mentoring of Isaiah Zagar.
