Quincy Students Decorate Silk Banners


 Bloomerang Artist Carol Bradbury visited the students at Quincy Elementary on Wednesday, Sept. 24th as part on an on-going project with the fine arts signature school. Bradbury has organized "We the People," a community project that Quincy students will help create. Today, students worked on decorating silk panels that will be used to create new NOTO and Safe Streets banners.
Bradbury instructed the students to decorate the banners with a garden theme in mind. First, they were to draw outlines of items found in a garden with a brightly-colored permanent marker. Next, the students used special silk paint to fill in the images. The result: beautiful, vibrant works of art that represent Quincy and the Topeka community perfectly.
