Under the guidance of Marina Lee, students from Elm Creative Arts School, Milwaukee, WI designed and painted the 'Arts for Growth' panels. The fifth grade students were the soul designers working with plants or flowers, a border and words. All grade levels assisted with the painting. The project was funded through a grant from the Mary Nohl Foundation. MDO plywood, the best primers, paints and sealers were used for lasting effects on the front of the art building.
