Twenty six students created a variety of themed human-like hearts with clay and glaze with some mixed media accents. Along with their teacher’s three sample hearts a total of 29 hearts are in the installation honoring donor’s contributions for the center. The Grand Opening on January 13th, 2016 displayed the collaborative installation to the community and the artists. The Oakridge Teen Health Center would not be possible without our generous donors. We are very fortunate to have these donors partner with Oakridge and Hackley Community Care to make this health center happen for kids. Check out our High School Art of the Heart project commemorating our appreciation for our donors.
