Designing a skateboard with Sanders

Milwaukee Bucks center and power forward Larry Sanders joined a group of Westside Academy’s 7th and 8th graders to talk and create a skateboard design. Sanders, who has been drawing since childhood and has a passion for skateboarding, met the students at Arts @ Large in downtown Milwaukee in March.

Arts @ Large is a non-profit organization that connects arts to academics through meaningful arts experiences for Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) students. Arts @ Large was created in 2001 as an MPS district program with funds from the U. S. Department of Education and became a nonprofit center in 2005, engaging the funding community as partners in arts education for K-12 students.
