CCS Student Artists Create Art for World Habitat Day
Burnley-Moran Art Teacher Eileen Butler worked with Ms. Meyer’s Kindergarten class and Ms. Headd's 4th graders to make a beautiful banner for World Habitat Day.The Habitat for Humanity for Greater Charlottesville’s Youth United Program sponsored the project for local student artists, featuring a theme of “housing cities after disaster strikes.” Student banners are on display downtown through the week.
Habitat's Youth United Chapter will be hosting activities for local youth to help them learn about the issue of housing poverty on the global scale, and how they can help to combat it locally. Local activities will include a gathering on the Downtown Mall at the Free Expression Monument on Friday, October 7 from 4-6 pm to share housing information with local citizens.
For information about Youth United activities, call Sara Parrish, Youth United Coordinator, at 434-293-9066.
