Senior Parking

At Kaefer's high school the seniors may paint the parking spots in the first two rows of the parking lot that are reserved for them. It doesn't guarantee that they can park their car right here - but it's a great creative outlet for them before the beginning of the school year and it really makes the rather bleak parking lot way more beautiful.

Kaefer is a senior this year, and some of these spots were painted by her friends. I think the kids (they are still kids, aren't they?) were pretty creative!

I really like the octopus!

I took these pictures a couple days after orientation when the parking lot was rather empty. I knew that I wouldn't have any chance to find that many empty spaces during the school year.

You just have to like teenagers and their quirkiness when you see paintings like these!

Oh what fun.
And every parking lot would be improved with a bit of whimsy like this.
Thank you for brightening my day.

That is a really great idea! These 'kids' are quite talented too. :)

Hubby and I went to a chalk art festival a while back and it was amazing what people can create on the concrete. I like the octopus as well.

What a fun idea, and a great outlet for the kids' creativity! (Yes, they are definitely still kids, though probably not for long.)

Wonderful idea that encourages class spirit!
