Coloring the path to our future
Art and Ecology 7th and 8th grade students at the Hilliard City Schools Innovative Learning Hub created these paintings as well as helped in the creation of the mural on the outside of the Hilliard Civic and Cultural Arts Center. This work tells a story about their community. Students worked with mural artist-in-residence Mandi Caskey through a Teach Arts grant funded by the Ohio Arts Council. Through a collaborative community effort from Hilliard Arts Council, Hilliard Arts Commission, City of Hilliard and Hilliard City Schools, students have been able to learn about advocacy, agency and representation through civic engagement.
