Coal buckets aren't just for coal anymore in Southeast Kansas. They're art.
On Tuesday students from Lakeside Elementary helped unveil six small coal buckets they designed and artistically painted, as did Pittsburg High students, Girard High students and even a home school student named, Rosa.
The coal buckets will be placed in business windows as giant coal buckets are painted by professional artists in time for the Little Balkans Festival.
Their images celebrate why its good to live in Kansas.
