Students and a comic book artist are teaming up to save some walls and the world. It’s a collaboration that taught Chula Vista students how to save the Earth and prepped an artist to decorate some blank walls at the city’s Civic Center Library.
“The purpose of this is to get children aware of how important it is to save energy,” said artist Ceri Langell who lead a discussion with Hilltop Drive Elementary fifth graders Tuesday.
Langell asked the students how they could save energy and conserve water. She then had them draw pictures together that she will then translate into comic book characters for a mural at the library.
“It’s good to be around the children to get and inspiration for what my main characters are going to look like,” said the artist who is also behind the Corrsolla Robot series.
The project is expected to unveiled by the end of the summer.
The collaboration was funded by SDG&E through a Local Government Partnership grant.
“They should always keep an eye open in doing things for their community such as artwork that can help change younger generations,” said Langell about her students.
