Located at the intersection of Vine and Oak Streets in what was formerly an underused and unattractive lot on the grounds of El Sol Elementary, we are creating the El Sol Children’s Art Garden with grant funds from the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo and the Kalamazoo Community Foundation. The garden will consist of various art and nature-themed beds, such as a color wheel garden, elements of design garden, poetry garden, and butterfly garden, as well as permanently-displayed student art projects including a large mural and mosaic. The goal of the garden is to beautify the school and neighborhood while creating an outdoor creative learning space for the students of El Sol.
