Warren students use paint to spread awareness for heart health | WKBN.com

Various art students from Warren G. Harding High School are using paint to spread awareness for American Heart Month.

“We are doing all kinds of artwork based around hearts, fitness and promoting healthy well-being,” said sophomore Nicolas Fabian.

Fabian is a student in Ms. Melia’s advanced drawing and painting class. He and his classmates are creating heart-inspired paintings.

“So I was trying to find a figure to show healthy heart, you know? To spread awareness about having healthy hearts and healthy organs in general,” said junior Isaiah Feuerwerker.

Feuerwerker came up with the character Dwayne “The Heart” Johnson because he believes it carries a good message about heart health.

“He’s a very good figure to represent that. He has a healthy body and healthy mindset,” Feuerwerker said.

The students say they’re happy they can take part in spreading awareness, especially because heart disease affects many people.

“If you start young and you pay attention to your organs, then you’ll be good later on,” Feuerwerker said.
