Upstairs in the house there is a meeting room that serves as a classroom, two classrooms with desks and chalkboards, and a computer room that contains 12 computers. In the middle of these rooms is a large space with a library that has little to no decoration on the walls, as you can see in the photo below.
The students in the art class are setting out to change this, however. They have envisioned a beautiful ocean scene on tiles that will be placed above the shelves of the library. The photos below are the beginnings of their work on that part of the mural.
Other projects are individual drawings that the students have made that will painted directly on the wall, and other surprises that you will have to come back to the blog to see the final product. Or, as a volunteer at Conviven you will have the opportunity to see these decorations a few times a week!
Check back soon to see what else the students at Conviven have been up to!
