During this past summer program BUGS students worked on beautifying the raised garden beds in the front of the East Harbor Campus. The process was successful with the help of Morgan Stanley volunteers. The volunteers helped to sand and prime the flower for the students to paint their designs.
Throughout the summer the students worked on designs inspired by the landscape around the campus and their imaginations. We even took a few design trips on the water taxi to the Under Armor factory for inspiration.
During the last week of camp BUGS students got to work with Guest artist Alexis Mena. Alexis is a muralist, visual artist and teaching artist born and raised in Brooklyn, New York.  Mr. Mena and the students collaborated to bring the designs to life on the bed.
