Madison High Schoolers Paint The Town


MADISON, NJ —In a tradition that has been happening for over five years, art students from Madison High School painted the windows of participating Madison businesses for the holiday season.

“Madison High School teams up every year with the Chamber of Commerce to have the store windows decorated for the holiday season,” Heather Sokolowski, Madison High School Visual Art Director, said.

Over 40 student volunteers from all grades (9-12) participated in the project this year.

“The goal of this project is to help decorate the downtown storefronts to lift the spirits of holiday shoppers and make the downtown an even more attractive shopping destination during the upcoming season,” Sokolowski said.

It takes students 2-8 hours to finish these paintings.

“The students absolutely love doing this project and the businesses seem to enjoy it as well. I think it has been a very successful tradition in Madison,” Sokolowsi said.

Businesses sign up for the service through the Chamber of Commerce.  The cost is $25, which goes to pay for the paint and supplies used. 

Students meet with business owners to discuss a concept and then try to create a holiday representation for that business.
