Coffee cup sleeves serve an everyday purpose, but The Well Coffee Co. took these often unnoticed accessories and turned them into art pieces with help from students at Pleasure Ridge Park (PRP) High School.

Students in PRP’s art classes put their pencils to the cup to create 500+ individual designs, from heart-warming messages to landscape paintings and cartoon illustrations, boosting the look of the otherwise plain sleeves.

Now, customers of the South End coffee shop — formerly Sister Bean’s Coffee House — can get a taste of the community with their cup of joe.

The Well owner, Pat Stayton, is working with two other area schools to create another 1,000 custom sleeves. He’s also extending the offer to other high schools to get in on the creative action. Just call The Well Coffee Co. at (502) 364-0082.
