Columbia Central and Vandercook Lake High Schools participated in Paint-a-Plow Program
 

The Jackson County Department of Transportation (JCDOT) has proudly partnered with two more schools in our Paint-a-Plow Program.  Columbia Central and Vandercook Lake High School art students have recently completed painting JCDOT plows that represent their schools. These plows will be used to clear snowy roads throughout Jackson County.  Students collaborated on a design, learned to transfer the design to the plow, and then began the painting process.

Paint-a-Plow is a community outreach program that invites students to paint a JCDOT snow plow with original artwork, to represent their individual school.  (Jackson County high school art instructors can apply to the program for their students by clicking on the paint brush icon found in the middle of this page.) In addition to being visible when in full service during the winter-weather months, the plows can be used at events within the community to enhance public awareness, promote safety, and foster a greater appreciation of both JCDOT and the school’s art program.  Plus, it’s fun!

In these photos you can see how students began the design transfer process and progressed to completely painted plows.
