COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Some students from the Brookstone School in Columbus had the opportunity to work with the homeless community to inspire hope.

Fourth graders joined local artist Bo Bartlett during the "Home Is Where the Art Is" event on Thursday, April 14.

The purpose of the event was to create artwork with individuals of the homeless community of Columbus.

Together they created pieces that reflect the theme of hope so that they may inspire others.

Organizers say they are excited that students were given the opportunity to work alongside these individuals.

"This has been going on for about a year, year and a half where volunteers come and help participants [the homeless community] create their own pieces of artwork," said artist Bo Bartlett. "And this week we have a visiting class from Brookstone who's come down to participate as well."

The event took place at the Safehouse at Rose Hill Methodist Church in Columbus.
