Even more Indian Lake first graders are getting a special gift from high school students this year!
Ryan Stanford’s ILHS Graphic Design class added a section this fall because so many students wanted to take the course. One of their signature assignments is to design a specialized coloring book for the younger students. Mr. Stanford explains that this project teaches his students how to edit and manipulate images in the Photoshop Program. His students must include content that is appropriate for their young audience, as well as fine details of design. 
The first grade students get a chance to critique the projects before they are printed in their final form and select which style they prefer. 
The ILHS students recently presented the finished products to students in three first grade classes, instead of just two classes that got to participate in year's past. The students were able to color together and share snacks.
Mr. Stanford says it adds extra motivation to do the project well because they know it's going to a first grader. 
This year's coloring book designs included super heroes, animals, ABCs, and more.
