While writing or drawing on desk may be frowned upon in most educational settings, students at Wake Forest University painted colorful images on more than 60 desks last week for a good cause. 

Discovering Education through Student Knowledge (D.E.S.K.) is an annual service project that was launched in 2000 by Tierney Kraft and Elizabeth Eubank, both 2004 graduates of WFU. Kraft and Eubank saw a need for the children they tutored to have a special space in their homes for studying and learning.

This year, students representing more than 50 organizations helped paint desks for students at Old Town Elementary School. Each group of students was partnered with a student from Old Town and together they personalized the desk.

On the day of the event, life-like sharks, colorful flowers, and even cartoon characters came to life. During the event students were also treated to pizza, games, and free school supplies.
