Painting to Play! Creating an Imaginative Outdoor Playscape at Hyattsville Elementary School

November 09, 2019

Grimm and Parker Architects is partnering with Hyattsville Elementary School staff and the PTA to re-imagine the paved play area with painted games, murals, and learning activities.

To take advantage of the plentiful paved area, volunteers will be able to create an imaginative playscape that encourages movement, helps to designate various activity areas, and offers learning opportunities outside of the classroom. Volunteers will also be able to help transform an existing planter into a rock box for the PK program in addition to creating a designated chalkboard wall art area.
