Across the street from Cesar Chavez Middle School is a long fence. Youth from the middle and high schools felt it would be nice to add some color to the fence as a service project.

A long brown fence… Very common in certain neighborhoods
Up close it doesn’t look great
Each day a few hundred kids walk by this fence on the way home from school.
The fence is taped off into sections. Each team of youth can take a section and draw what they think is beautiful and uplifting.
Covering the brown fence with colorful backgrounds. Each section can have a unique color.
Iris and friends take a break.
