Painting for Pine Hill School’s new playground

EUREKA – A former teacher at Pine Hill Elementary School went back to campus to raise money for a new playground.
Paul Rickard taught at the school ten years ago and now works as an artist. Friday morning, Rickard taught 3rd graders the basics of plein air painting, or painting outdoors.
Students learned to create an initial sketch and how to use color to create depth.
Rickard’s painting of the coast will be auctioned off at the school’s art night to raise money for the playground.
