• Robert Down School’s Art for the Sky Lesson Keeps Giving

    Fire victims of the Northern California Wine Country fires are about to receive the bundles of blue jeans collected for the “Something Blue” donation project at Robert Down School.

    Earmarked for their Art for the Sky “lesson of a lifetime” event project to teach the Four C’s of the 21st century learning – critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity — the jeans were all the donated eventually to become the otter art image (seen here spread out before the event; story to be published in next week’s edition).

    Topes truck is entering the scene to be placed in position to elevate the artist, Daniel Dancer, who will direct the overhead drone shots and take additional stills to be posted in next weeks issue. The ensuing image will be of an otter and the children, all (500), will be covering the grass, leaving the image of one of our local icons, the sea otter. Photo by Katie Shain

    These jeans, in all sizes, are now headed to northern California victims of the massive wild fires thanks to Summer Coe, a staff member of Robert Down.

    Al Siekert’s generous and inspired idea to ask Cedar Street Times to place a request for donations that he will be driving north on Sunday is paying off.

    Donations of all types are piling up. Additional requests are adult diapers, pet cages, toiletries and batteries.
