Nearly two dozen students involved in Art Club, National Art Honor Society and National Honor Society volunteered for several hours after school, to paint windows and doors at Akron Children's Beeghly Campus.
Painting on windows can be difficult because the paint is transparent and wipes off. Additionally, students were working on a much larger scale than they normally do. In some cases, they used coloring book images to reference while drawing, and some that were traced onto large paper to hang from the outside of the window to trace. However, most of the students chose to free-hand and paint from their imaginations.
Art teacher Amanda Bero said the students really enjoyed it, many of them asked if we could arrange to go back in the spring and paint new scenes. "It was also great to hear guests and employees of the hospital complimenting and talking with students as they were working," said Bero.
