“Middle School Students Turn Casual Art Into Merchandise At Crate & Barrel”

Cool Program! “Crate and Kids”

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Some young, local art students have landed a spot in the “home” section of Crate & Barrel. Their line launches Monday and will be on display in East Falls.

The local non-profit “Fresh Artists” selected a group of 11 talented 5th through 9th graders from schools in Philadelphia, Camden and Norristown about a year and a half ago to work on a bedding line with designers from Crate and Barrel.

“It’s called Crate and Kids,” said Fresh Artists Founder Barbara Allen.

Allen says the idea was to show kids how doing fun stuff like art can turn into a job. On Monday night, they and their families will see the finished product.
