Students on campus had the opportunity to participate in a Valentine’s day canvas painting event and show their creativity while being useful to the community.

The cafeteria is a place where students eat lunch and talk to friends in advisory, but on Wednesday it was turned into a place where art and creativity flowed. Students painted canvases with Valentine’s Day as the theme with some of them being given to a local assisted living home where residents could enjoy the art.

I decided to sign up for canvas painting this year because I didn’t get an opportunity to do it last year,” senior Caitlin Montgomery said. “ When I did it before it was such a nice opportunity not only to get to talk to some of the other people at Liberty, but to do something nice and volunteer. I think it’s really nice to get into the Valentine’s day season and do something nice for others and spread love in the community.”

Every canvas painted earned students one volunteer hour for a maximum of up to two hours. Students also had the option to pay seven dollars to keep their art with all proceeds going to student council.

“The purpose of the event tonight was student council put together a paint along type of situation where I did a painting that had a Valentine’s day theme,” art teacher Jeb Matulich said. “It was a good way for students to have some fellowship, have some fun, and also get some service hours and donate some of their paintings to good causes.”
