16 Hard at Work Students worked diligently to design their tiles to the best of their abilities.

17 Sketching Designs Students began designing the tiles in pencil first.

18 Focused Students were absorbed in the process once they understood why we were taking part in the Project of Heart.

19 Adding Colour When students were satisfied with their pencil sketches, they added colour to their tiles.
