LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Another school district is showing off how students depict compassion.
Tiles from Aquinas students are being set up at the La Crosse Public Library on Main Street.
It's part of the school's own Compassion Project. Crews started putting up the display Tuesday morning.
The La Crosse SchoolDdistrict brought the Compassion project to our area this fall. Students are bringing compassion to life in the form of a 6 x 6 canvass.
An art teacher with Aquinas says this project is a great way to encourage students to be compassionate and understand how to help one another.
"It's sometimes easier to draw a picture rather than express it through words. So, as you can see, they're all so different and it just gives each kid their own view, their own opinion on the subject," said Aquinas Art Teacher Brittany Luecke.
Aquinas has an open house on Friday form 4- 6 p.m. for the display at the La Crosse Public Library. The tiles will be up for a few months.
The School District of La Crosse's Compassion Project display will also be unveiled Friday at the Pump House Regional Arts Center. About 6,000 pieces will be on display.
News 8 is working on a special presentation with the project. We'll have a lot of details on the project's timeline and what some of the tiles mean for the student at both 5 and 6.
