The Eclipse team put the office on pause for three hours today to work on a mosaic mural at Kozminski Elementary School. Partnering with Chicago Cares and the Green Star movement, we lent a hand in this three-week project to bring art and optimism to the Hyde Park.
Working with Green Star foremen, Kozminski students, and other volunteers, the Eclipse team had a blast practicing our art skills, chatting with new friends and singing along to Stevie Wonder. It is evident that this mural not only beautifies the area, but also instills excitement about community involvement in the students. The kids’ energy was contagious and their artistic abilities well exceeded our own.
Our hands are covered in mortar and we are filled with excitement for the optimism this mosaic will bring to both students and the community. Learn about how you can contribute to similar amazing projects at http://greenstarmovement.org.
