Long Beach Art Students Have Heart

Schools and Libraries

February 19, 2014


Members of the Long Beach High School National Art Honor Society traveled to Lindell Elementary School for a special art service project. Working with third-graders in Jennifer Diamond's class and fourth-graders in Sara Mayo's class, the high school students showed the younger students how to create and decorate ceramic hearts. On their first visit to Lindell, the older students helped the younger students mold and decorate the hearts out of clay. After the hearts were fired in a kiln, the high school students returned to help the younger students paint and glaze their work in time for Valentine's Day.


"It was a terrific experience for the elementary school students who learned the art of ceramics and also for the National Art Honor Society students who gained experience as teachers," said NAHS adviser Sue Presberg.
