This spring, Ebenezer Child Care Centers was fortunate to have over 40 creative art students from a Service Learning course at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD) come into our downtown center and spruce it up a little. The extremely talented students worked with us to design and paint some beautiful murals in two of our classrooms. The result of their efforts are welcoming and visually stimulating environments for our children.
Our toddle room, for children 12 to 15 months, now has a fun gold fish theme. We chose this theme because the room features windows on two sides, which allow for children, parents and visitors to see one another, suggesting the experience of being in a fishbowl.
Our school-age room, for kids 5-12, now has captivating, larger than life dinosaurs painted throughout it to help spark our kids’ imagination and creativity while they are spending time our center.
We are so grateful to these amazing MIAD art students for donating their time and creative talent to make our center more inviting and beautiful. For more information on the MIAD Service Learning course please visit http://blogs.miad.edu/service/about-3/
