CPS Students Update School Hallways With Student Designed Art

Paint hand prints on a wall

Students are participating in updating and beautifying the bland school hallway walls with their own original ideas and handiwork!  The decorated walls look a hundred percent better already and everyone is eager to see the finished work! Students love engaging in conversations about making the school more welcoming to visitors and love how the artwork lifts their spirits as well.  They are volunteering their time after school to get the work done!  Themes included are inclusion, equity, and community.
Other student ideas that our school is considering include: painting directions on the floors, adding inspirational quotes on the hallway walls, and finding a parent volunteer to build a memorabilia case.
The work is still in progress, with many thoughtful ideas coming from continuing conversations about the appearance of our school.  Stay tuned for an update and pictures of the finished work!
