BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. -- Students are adding their creative touch to the Above and Beyond Sculpture Garden at James Walker Elementary School. For three years, students and volunteers have been pitching to build the garden behind the school. Fourth grader Aidan King says all the kids are doing their part.

"So far we have a concrete path, and each grade gets to take care of a certain parts of the path," said Aidan King.

The garden began as part of masters project for art teacher Greta Hoener and has evolved to something she never imagined.

"We've got a garden now, a club and we areĀ  ready for some art work from the community," said Hoener.

Inside the garden there are six pads of concrete where the sculptures will eventually sit.

Now Hoener says it's time to get and some artwork and is calling on artists to submit ideas and pieces for the garden. .

Fifth grader Alexis Turnbow says she thinks the community will love it when it's finished.

"I think they would say, wow. Just imagine how much work was put in and how long it took," said Turnbow.

The school is also selling bricks that will fill the end of the walk path.
