HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Students gathered in Hartford to help build a mural with Teach For America Saturday.

Children collaborated with artists and community leaders in on Windsor Street during the morning and afternoon to paint the mural.

The project was created to provide an opportunity teach kids how to use art as inspiration and a form of unity.

RiseUP, The Underground Coalition and the Connecticut Center for Nonviolence also partnered with the students for the project.

The mural has since been finished and is visible to spectators.
