Gerard Academy youth transform skate park into a work of art

Students and staff of Gerard Academy’s New Dominion School transformed the graffiti ridden Austin Skate Park into a work of art.

The students had a blast while using their artistic talent to create a bright and inviting environment for the youth of Austin.

NDS Art Teacher Chris Oftelie praised the students for their hard work and creativity. The group looks forward to the next opportunity to make a positive impact on the Austin community.
