Yes, students actually rush to school to study in a classroom like this

The Wall Art Project is a non-profit organization based in Tokyo. To encourage a sense of wonderment and possibility amongst students as far away as India and Tibet, the organization has launched the Wall Art Festival, where artists are invited to share their inspiration and creativity, and bring their art into schools. One of the artists who came on board this meaningful project was Japanese artist Yusuke Asai. Asai paints with basically anything he can get his hands on – tape, pens, leaves, dust and mud.

He traveled to the Niranjana School in Bahar of East India for this project and stayed true to his creation process by using only materials available in the vicinity. They included water and straw, seven different types of soil and a whole lot of cow dung. What he drew within the walls of a classroom will simply take our collective breathes away. Titled Earth Painting: The Forest of Vows, we wonder seriously if the students would be able to pay attention in this class thereafter.
