Grant Community School

This project involved the entire population of students at the new K-8th grade Grant Community School. The growing and changing theme took shape in imaginary plant forms to be their arched lite entrance for the new edition to the school located in Milwaukee. The students designed and helped build the arches. While the students could not build the poles due to the amount of steel, they were able to build the arches. The students also color designed for the painting and they did all the painting work by simply rolling the poles over after a side was completed and the arches had specially designed holding racks for safety. The sidewalk was also designed from the students work and the fantasy creatures you see in the walkway lead the children out to the playground.
