Hillside-Horizon Helping Hands Program


Last week, CPNJ’s Horizon Elementary School students traveled to Hillside Elementary School in Livingston. Students from both schools worked together to color in a 30×30 piece, inspired by pop artist Roy Lichtenstein. In the past each student was given an individual piece to work on – to be placed together to form a larger piece. This year was a bit different as students worked simultaneously to complete the project. Each student in attendance contributed to the construction of the masterpiece. After the craft was complete, the students mingled during an extended lunch period before returning to business as usual. Thanks again to our friends at Hillside Elementary School for another amazing day!

The art project is part of the Hillside-Horizon Helping Hands program, which creates opportunities for special needs students to interact with their non-disabled peers.
