Church Hill Elementary School Students Decorate Crash Cart for Pediatric Care at UM SMC


CHES crashcart groupSecond graders in Queen Anne’s County’s Church Hill Elementary School put their artistic talents and their study of the artist, Vincent Van Gogh, to good use this spring with a very special project — to paint a “crash cart” for use in pediatric care at UM Shore Medical Center at Chestertown. With the school’s art teacher, Cassie Hosler, the students transformed a dull, gray metal cart into a thing of beauty, reminiscent of Van Gogh’s work. “It took a lot of paint,” noted one of the budding artists. “We put it on really thick so it won’t peel off and will keep looking beautiful for a long time.” The students, Ms. Hosler (third row, third from left) and the school principal, Lloyd Taylor (back row, left), were excited to unveil the completed project to UM SMC at Chestertown nursing staff members Linda Pippin and Beverly Greaves (third row, left) Steven Jacobson and Jen Nutley (third row, right).
