HHMS Students Create Art That Heals

Students in the Art for a Cause Club at Hamilton Holmes Middle School spent their fall meetings creating pinwheels for Students Rebuild. Per their website (www.studentsrebuild.org), Students Rebuild is a “collaborative program of the Bezos Family Foundation that inspires young people to connect, learn and take collective action on critical global issues”. For each pinwheel contributed to the Healing Classrooms Challenge, $2 is donated to assist with Syrian youth refugees in the Middle East. The members of the Art for a Cause club were able to create more than 100 pinwheels for this worthy cause.

Students in grades sixth through eighth grades meet one to two times per month to work on art and service projects that have an impact outside of school. Future projects the club is planning to work on include the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Student Series (formerly Pennies for Patients) and painting ceiling tiles for display in cancer centers.
