John Lewis Elementary School

About the Org

John Lewis is a brand new Title 1 school in DeKalb County. Since they just opened up this year, they have not built up a good supply of art supplies.

About the Students: 375 students, grades PK-5, almost all students receive free/reduced lunch, 98% Hispanic population who are ESOL.

About the Project

We would like to do a garden painting where every student adds a flower to the garden.  The students love art class because they can express themselves in a way that does not involve speaking or writing in English as a second language. Art is the universal language at John Lewies Elementary. Approx 75-100 students involved.
