Dog bandanas and artistic postcards were created by the CPC High Point Elementary School art students for a special community service project that benefits area foster dogs.
Over the past month, students were learning about how animal shelters, and foster programs help animals get food, medical care, and find loving families. In a project inspired by art, students used a fabric dyeing method to design bandanas and used watercolors to create pet-inspired postcards. Students hope the bandanas they designed will help the dogs "stand out" at adoption events! The postcards will be used by the area foster programs to write notes to donors and thank the volunteers of each program. In total, 48 bandanas were donated to 6 foster organizations and community shelters!
Special shout out to teachers Kim & Geri who worked together to reach out to the various animal programs to facilitate the donations and create the vinyl logos. Special thanks too - to CPC Teaching Assistants who helped students during the bandana dyeing process. A great time was had by all! This hands-on project was a terrific experience for students to feel compassion and gratitude while being exposed to community service opportunities, and at the same time build foundational art skills.
Thank you to all students and teachers at High Point!
