Over nearly four years, hundreds of Nettleton Elementary students (with guidance from art teacher Darlene Peterson) helped create beautiful, large scale ceramic art pieces and banners to be installed in the newly renovated Myers-Wilkins Elementary. The art projects tie to what they're learning in the classroom and are built around themes of peace, kindness and respect.
