Kids Use Free Speech Wall to Draw What They Learned

July 11, 2013

Charlottesville students are taking over the Free Speech Wall on the Downtown Mall.

Fourth, fifth and sixth grade students participating in the Charlottesville Parks and Recreation summer camp came out to show off their artwork and sketch some of their favorite camp experiences.

It's part of a unique public art project called StoryLine Project. This year's theme is transportation.

"We've been learning about transportation..all types of transportation back in the past and into the future," said Dezmond Bowles, student.

During camp, students walked along the James River in Scottsville, rode a Charlottesville Area Transit bus and biked around town.

Before sketching their experience on the wall, they also learned more about the freedom of speech.
