Painting MS 306 with Publicolor

Please join 'Street Project' and 'Publicolor' in painting MS 306 in Brooklyn. You will be matched with teenagers. You do NOT need to know anything about painting at all. We will teach everything you need to know. This is a golden opportunity for both volunteers and students to share in an unforgettable and unique dialogue that we view as informal mentoring. Since we are teaching good work habits, we ask that you model excellent behavior and a strong work ethic with our students. We will provide lunch. However, in order to help defray the cost of lunch we ask that the volunteers donate $10 per person (please bring cash). Thanks in advance! Please wear painting clothes and shoes. We use odor-free latex paint that will wash out of your hair and skin but not out of your clothes. We will provide gloves for painting.

Meeting Time: 9:45 am (until 2:45 with lunch)

Meeting Place: MS 306 at 970 Vermont Street, Brooklyn, NY 11207

Take the 3 or 4 train to Pennsylvania Avenue; walk South 6 blocks on Pennsylvania Avenue to Wortman Avenue and turn left. The school is in 2 blocks on Vermont Street. [Alternatively take the L train to New Lots Avenue and first walk 7 blocks East to Pennsylvania.]
