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.
