A small group of art students recently painted a locally-inspired mural on the wall of the new yogurt shop on Atlantic Avenue.
Thanks to a handful of teen artists, the new Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt shop on Atlantic Avenue will have a local touch when it opens on Friday. Nine Marblehead High School National Art Honor Society students have spent the last month painting a mural of a sailboat in Marblehead Harbor, with Chandler Hovey Park in the background.

The artists were: Jessica Cowan, Victoria Kearney, Abby Nye, Sarah Katz, Stephanie Lundgren, Sarah Cohen, Nicole Shauffer, Lily Roberts and Maddy McKeever.
