Fifteen students in West Orange County schools painted rain barrels that were selected for display in the Orlando Utilities Commission’s Water Color Project.
The rain barrels are on display at CityArts and will be auctioned off to OUC and Orange County Public Schools employees. The money from the sales goes to the school’s art program.
Eighty-nine students on 16 teams were selected to paint a rain barrel. Local participants were Isabella Baez, Declan Currance, Sarah Dinh, Olivia Martez, Nelgine Cesaire, Richard Daves, Lincoln Paul and Alan Morales-Ibarra, all of Ocoee Middle School; Brian Pierre Louise, of Ocoee High; and Gabby Bull, Madison McFarland, Sabrina Konradt, Issabell Ogborn, Rylee Bryant and Maria Rodriquez, of SunRidge Middle.
