(Branson, MO) – The walls of Skaggs Family Health Clinic are crawling with frogs, lizards, and insects. Not literally; the amphibians and bugs are the creative work of 19 second, third, and fourth graders at Branson Elementary.

The framed paintings hang in the waiting room of Skaggs Family Health Clinic, and are among the best of over 400 paintings submitted. Branson Elementary East Art Teacher, Regina Seaman, says, “Every year the students compete in an art contest. First place winners in each class get to have his or her painting hung in the Table Rock Lake Art Gallery. The paintings decorating the walls at Skaggs are the second place winners from each class.”

The theme of frogs, lizards, and insects compliments the lessons each grade is learning in class. The fourth graders are learning about frogs, the third graders are studying lizards and their habitat, and the second graders are talking about insects in their classes.

Skaggs Family Health Clinic Manager, Lori Leochner, says, “This is a family clinic, so it was only appropriate to have children’s artwork hanging in the waiting area. It also teaches the students a lesson on sharing and helps build their self-esteem.

Skaggs Family Health Clinic is located on the 5th floor of Skaggs Outpatient Center, 545 Branson Landing Blvd., Branson, MO.
