Parsons Middle School Students Work To Brighten The Halls of Parsons Presbyterian Manor

Parsons, Kan. – If you think basement halls are dark, drab places, you haven’t been to the basement of Parsons Presbyterian Manor.
There, the hallways are colorfully decorated with the creations of Parsons Middle School Fine Arts students. They started painting murals on the walls during last school year.
“We hope to continue to come and add to it every year,” said Kelsey Fabrycki, Parsons Middle School Fine Arts Teacher. “We hope to use our artwork to brighten the halls and the lives at Presbyterian Manor.”
The 7th and 8th graders try to come out to the manor twice a year. They’re currently working on two murals – one is a classic car driving down a country road and the other is a German Shepherd in sunflowers.
“The students brainstorm ideas that they hope the residents and staff will enjoy,” said Fabrycki. The students will keep adding murals and once the walls are full she says they’ll keep adding to existing murals.
The residents and staff at Parsons Presbyterian Manor are loving the colorful art.
“These students are making a difference,” says Crystal Packard, Executive Director. “We love watching their ideas come to life and it’s fun to stop and admire their creations as we go about our days.”
The students have wrapped up their work for this school year. People at the manor can’t wait to welcome them back when the new year starts in the fall.
