Beautiful flowers are popping up along along Newark Avenue in Jersey City — and as a bonus, they never need to be watered.
The flowers — and other incredible designs — are being painted by Jersey City high school students in the planters all along the busy stretch of roadway. The project, under the guidance of teacher Danielle Scott, is being completed by 26 students from Snyder, Dickinson, Ferris and McNair high schools.
Great use of HS Art Students! Let them get involved. It helps them to develop “real world” art skills and to take pride in their community. Why more High Schools don’t do projects like this is something I’ve never understood.
