Mighty Fingers Project
Posted on 02/14/2018

Lambertville artist Kelly Sullivan brought her Mighty Fingers Facing Change program to the Hillsborough Middle School earlier this month to help HMS students create an original piece of art.

HMS teacher Gina Kay was one of five state-wide winners to have the opportunity to bring Sullivan and her program into their school to create an original piece of art, funded by the New Jersey Education Association.

The Mighty Fingers Facing Change program leads students through a day of projects and discussion about ways they can empower themselves and be the change they want to see. At HMS, 25 girls in grades seven and eight participated in the day's event. The day culminated with each of the girls adding their finger print to a large global finger smear canvas.
As a culminating activity to this presentation, Kelly has created an online Finger Smear project representing the things we love about Hillsborough!  Please join us in completing the Finger Smear by adding your own creative touch to the project!  Paint as little or as much as you like and feel free to save the link and revisit it often.  Have fun! http://paint.team/raiders/

"Kelly and her staff were amazing," Kay said."The girls really enjoyed the activities of the day, which promoted self-reflection and being part of something bigger than themselves.  I think this day will have a lasting impact on them.  And, a big thanks to the HMS Home & School Association for providing breakfast and lunch for the event!"
