THE PROJECT: 

Austell Elementary recently got a grant to create a learning garden outside their school. When the garden was vandalized by students, the science teacher had the idea to reach out to Paint Love to see if we could involve the students in making the garden a place every student was proud of and felt ownership over. In partnership with The Creatives Project, artist Meta Gary is working with almost every class at Austell to create signage, a mural, a path, outside chalkboards for classes, and decorated benches for the learning garden. This event will be the final students/parent/community volunteer day as well a re-opening celebration for the learning garden! 

THE ORGANIZATION:

Austell Elementary is a Title 1 school in Cobb County, Georgia. Paint Love is partnering with The Creatives Project to help make this event possible.
