DURHAM, Calif. - After the Camp Fire, students and staff at Durham Elementary School opened their hearts to students from Ponderosa Elementary School in Paradise.
And right now, students are working on a project that artist Dan Evers says will symbolize a long lasting friendship.
Evers is the founder of the Rainforest Art Project – a group of professional artists who travel the country and create art with students.
These students helped create a mosaic of stained glass tiles that will appear on twin tiger benches.
One of the benches will return to Paradise and the other will stay in Durham.
"Like we find spots that are loose and glue it down and we’re going to wait until that whole thing is filled up – actually we cement it down – yup we put cement on the bottom and stick it on," two students with Ponderosa Elementary said.
"With everything else that’s going on, it's just amazing its just an experience our students and staff will never forget," Ed Gregorio, the Principal of Ponderosa Elementary School said.
The benches will be unveiled next Tuesday at the Durham Elementary School playground.
