Jackson Avenue School and Mineola Middle School, both in the Mineola Union Free School District, completed a school-wide art initiative based on the What Lifts You Campaign through Kelsey Montague Art.
The campaign, which began in New Zealand, asks artists to share what inspires them most in life and to create “wings” that exemplify this. All staff and students at each of the schools designed a feather centered around this theme, which the art teachers then brought to life as a complete set of wings.
The wings are located in central locations at each building to act as beautiful inspiration throughout the school day. To learn more about the movement, search for the hashtag, #WhatLiftsYou.
