AUBURN – Works from Auburn High School’s public art project are now displayed at Longs Creek Assisted Living.
Teacher and Art Club leader Pam Peiffer told the school board Monday she believes that getting students involved in community art gives them a connection with the community that last beyond their time in school.
Pfeifer: “When they move on from our schools they can say, I left that there, I know it will be there, so a part of me is there.”
Students also see the benefit of having their painting in the viewing rotation.
Pfeifer: They are more into it. Some of them struggle to pass on their artwork, because they had a commitment to it, but most of them enjoyed the fact that they get to pass it on and share that pleasure of viewing it with others.”
She said students have been receiving feedback from assisted living visitors and residence, who are proud to see local students’ work.
