NATCHEZ — High school student Jennifer Rosso of Adams County Christian School just finished a very special art project last week. It’s something generations of students will leave behind to sit back and enjoy.
Students painted chairs in the school library based on their favorite children’s books. When the paint dries, the bright and colorful chair will be placed in the library until the painting disappears, said school librarian Sandra Eight. Then perhaps it will be the turn of another class to leave its mark.
Rosso calls it a “legacy project”.
Each chair has the name of the student who worked on it printed on the bottom of the chair along with the year of graduation.
Kaylie Jester and Alli Lindsey teamed up to create a pastel blue chair with pink lettering that reads “Oh, the Places You’ll Go” after the Dr. Seuss book.
“I’m excited about this project,” said Jester. “I think it’s really cool. I hope I get to see them when they come back for reunions or something.”
Emma Massey and Addison Smith couldn’t decide which books were their favorites in the Dr. Seuss collection, so the chair has several of them.
Rosso said after moving into a new classroom this semester, she gained enough space to do a big art project.
“This is for next time,” she said, pointing to two large pallets in the middle of the classroom. When asked what the project would be like, she said, “It’s a surprise.”
