Paoli High School art teacher Chris Jones is continuing the tradition of making ceiling tiles for teachers this year.
Jones’s drawing 2 and Pre-AP drawing students are tasked with creating the tiles during the first semester of the school year. Every teacher is given the opportunity to purchase a tile to add to their classrooms. Teachers are also able to select a certain student to design their tile and can contact their artist to give them ideas or discuss their desired design. Tiles are $20 a piece, and the funds help the art department purchase new art supplies, computer software or any other necessity that the budget set does not cover.
“Every classroom has about 100 boring white ceiling tiles. This project adds something a little more interesting. Bringing color to the space that could brighten up someone’s day,” said Jones.
