Volunteers from El Salvador paint with students at P.S. 150

Volunteers from El Salvador were in Brooklyn Tuesday spreading their love of art with students at P.S. 150.



Students from the Imani House Afterschool Program at the school painted and drew a 16-foot mural in their cafeteria with the help of volunteers from Glasswing, an anti-poverty nonprofit in El Salvador.



The artwork showcases the diversity of the students, with children being drawn on the wall in different skin colors.



Glasswing donated 300 books to the school in addition to the mural.



The two-day program ends Wednesday, and officials say its purpose is to boost students' morale and self-esteem.
