Painting with a Purpose

Our elementary Art Summer Campers are on a mission to add some color to Villa's playground, but that's not all these students are doing. They are creating Buddy Benches. The benches will be a space where someone in need of a friend or cheering up can go to sit. That is the signal for other children to step up and ask the child on the bench to play. The benches are designed to foster friendship and inclusion on the playground.

The art students have great plans for their benches. We can't wait to see the final work. Thanks to Ms. Pillow and Mrs. Horn for helping the children with this special project!
