Four students work on projects in an art class. A long table is laid in the middle of a room. An equally long counter is covered in art supplies across from the table. To the right of the frame, numerous stacked shelves contain bottles and other objects spread out. A table underneath it is just as filled with brushes, bottles of water and piles of books / magazines. The walls are lined with art pieces and poems, including the following: "Rain on the housetop, Rain on the sea, Rain on the sidewalk, And rain on me." The LORD giveth, the LORD taketh away" "Night draws its shades, Darkness draws in, Draping the hemlock, With a veil of mist." Four students can be seen working on something. Two cover objects with glue, while the other two flip through pages of papers. Stacks of newspaper and paper are placed on the table, with another tall stack of binders on a nearby chair.
