James and Amanda Howe, owners of Howe’s Resale on 721 Broadway St. in Minden decided to reach out into the community for their decorating this holiday season. They contacted Minden High School Art Teacher Kayla Martin in hopes her art students would like to use their creativity to paint Howe’s Resale front display windows. Unfortunately Students of Martin’s Art class were preoccupied with other school activities. So Martin decided to take this project on herself. In exchange for donations to the Art Program from Howe’s Resale, Martin painted the holiday display by hand. “Kayla did a fantastic job on the windows, I was very impressed that she did the whole thing by hand”, Amanda Howe said.
