Harborview Elementary School Rain Barrel Painting: March 17th, 2012
Mr. Kacpura, the art teacher at Harborview Elementary school helped to arrange for Students from Mrs. Luckie’s SAIL fourth and fifth grade classes to come and paint the rain barrels. Sponges were precut into various marine animals for the students to use as stensils and then go back and add more details. Some of the sea creatures ended up with a little bit more paint than they needed to but the kids seemed to have a lot of fun. I gave them a tour of Grice Marine Lab and a touch tank session in the wet lab. We had quite a few future marine biologists!
