PARADISE, Calif. – Students at the Paradise High School created art pieces to bring inspiration and beauty to their campus.

A stained glass art piece was placed at the entrance of the library and a mosaic above the drinking fountains.

The Rainforest Art Project helped students put together these projects for the school. Students were able to get colorful and creative - bringing their artistic skills to life.

“We all just kind of worked together, and they put something together that was a combination of our ideas,” said Kylee Winebarger, a senior at Paradise Junior-Senior High School. “Then they brought all the pieces and equipment we needed and they showed us how to do it.”

We all need inspiration,” President of the Rainforest Art Project, Daniel Evers shared. "Research says creativity is going to be the number one competency of the twenty-first century. The world is changing rapidly and we are losing our sense of center and focus. Creativity is going to help us to adapt to a future that is quite unknown in many respects."

These projects took a year to complete. The Rainforest Art Project has been working with the Paradise Unified School District for over two years. Their goal - to engage with students in the creation of permanent artworks within the schools.

It was nice to receive some rain and mountain snow around northern California late Sunday and early Monday. Thankfully a change to our overall weather pattern is underway, and many more chances of rain are coming!
