Winola Elementary playground becomes a palette for art class

Students at Winola Elementary in Viola are integrating art and math to create an interactive path on the blacktop of the school's playground with paint. Restrictions handed down by the Illinois Department of Public Health and Illinios State Board of Education mean children aren’t allowed to play on the equipment, resulting in an opportunity for art teacher Tony Vermeer to get creative.
