Lakewood, Colorado — Not many young artists have a permanent collection. But that doesn’t apply to Foothills Elementary School.
All students designed tiles that will be displayed forever at school.
It all started with an art teacher named Stacey Kimbrough who applied for a grant to the Colorado Arts Partnership. She then used a $ 5,000 prize to teach her students how to use clay and created and installed this collection together. Naturally, she said it took a lot of work.
“Like all the great art projects, it started with a lot of sketches,” Kimbro told Denver 7 after the ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday morning. “And I was ready to practice with water-based clay and finally start the actual tiles. For the students, it took only 12 days, but when all the time is added, this project is 300 hours. It took more than that. “
In the video above you can see all the beautiful designs created by the students. Each fits the theme of “our neighborhood”.
