TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) -

Students at Temple High School have been using their skills to turn trash into art. 

Art students are painting nine dumpsters with various things like pumpkins or flowers that will go back to sit in downtown Temple.

The idea originally came from the owner of Bird Creek Burger Company, Jacob Bates, who is a Temple ISD graduate. 

The art students are letting their creativity soar.

"This is something different and it's just better than painting on a little canvas," Zoie Hernandez, a senior at Temple High School, said. "Normal dumpsters aren't beautiful."

The art class' teacher, Veronica Landers, said this project is important for her students to take part in.

"It's nice to have something that's non-traditional so to speak and it's a nice way of something that lasts a lot longer. So even if they do it, it's not a little piece of paper that goes up. It's not something that someone may or may not see for a little bit. They're going to be up. They're going to be around," Landers said. 

The students will finish the dumpsters and move them to downtown Temple sometime next week.
