I finished the pillars that are located by the 4th graders classrooms.  Since school has started, it was really nice to have some interaction with the children when they had to change classrooms.  With the pillars, I noticed I was getting a lot of positive feedback from the teachers and even the kids.  The pillars took a lot longer than I thought it would.  I have to believe it has something to do with the brick and how much it takes in the paint.  When I finished painting all the words with different colors, I noticed that it didn’t stand out as much as I thought it would.  So I went back and outlined the lettering in white which really helped it pop.  What I really enjoyed about doing this was the words I was able to put on the pillars.  I used inspirational words such as: hope, dream, believe, imagine, succeed.  These type of words will be great daily reminders for the children and even the faculty and staff.  I hope when they walk down that outside hall they are able to take it in and reflect.  The only negative I would have to say about the pillars is the fact I was outside.  The heat was incredibly brutal but I did make sure to keep myself hydrated.  I will post images of the pillars on my next post.

One thought on “Pillars”

  1. Glad these pillars have wrapped up! It’s time to transition from blog posts to assembling your final portfolio. Please look for an email from me about completing this final requirement of the internship.
