WESTSIDE NEIGHBORHOOD SCHOOL STUDENTS took part in a Portraits of Hope project April 29, where they painted dozens of vinyl panels that will later be applied to emergency vehicles in Aspen, Colo.

Some emergency vehicles in Aspen, Colo. will soon be decorated with artistic patterns designed by students at Westside Neighborhood School in Del Rey.
As part of the Portraits of Hope program, students painted dozens of vinyl panels that will be applied onto the emergency vehicles beginning in June. Portraits of Hope founders and brothers, Ed and Bernie Massey, led the April 29 session for 55 Westside Neighborhood School students, who worked together to paint the art panels in a floral motif.
This is the first time that government fire and rescue vehicles have been permitted to be transformed in this way, according to Portraits of Hope.
The project additionally included civic leadership education activities focusing on the importance of teamwork and collaboration in dealing with important community issues. As part of the session, the middle school students helped apply texture to several art panels that were later painted by children who are visually impaired at the Braille Institute.
Approximately 2,000 youngsters in schools, hospitals, and social service agencies in Colorado and California will participate in this Portraits of Hope project.
