Tribute to Sandy Hook Elementary
We at Draper Middle school were devastated by the act of violence that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary Students on December 14th and wanted to do something to help lift up their spirits. Students and myself spent an entire class discussing what power symbols and colors have during these tragic times. Some of the symbols that came up where, candles, hearts and angel wings. This lead us to create a piece (still in progress pictures to come soon *January 4th), involving candles, hearts, names and angel wings. Note that this idea although generated by me has now been taken over by the students who are driven to finish this project as soon as they come back from Christmas Break.
So in the meantime students wanted to make sure that I shared with you all the work in progress and the passion the students have towards Sandy Hook Elementary. Please share this as I want to spread Acts of Kindness to help washout all the evil has been taking place.
Enjoy the Slideshow of our work in progress and check back soon for a finished Artwork. We are also working on snowflakes for Sandy Hook which has become quite the viral trend in the best of ways.
We are also collecting Art Supplies which will be donated to the Sandy Hook School to help them express their feeling through art, in an Art Therapy type of way.
Lastly I was touched today as I realized Scotia High School students also felt motivated to do something for the fallen angles of Sandy Hook Elementary. They created a display made up of 26 Christmas Trees with ornaments and each tree represented one person whom lost their life at Sandy Hook.. Lets all try to do one Random Act of Kindness and make it go viral. I also want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas enjoy time with you and your family this Holiday Season.
