North Park Elementary School is sited at the corner of an 11 acre community park which includes sports facilities, a playground designed by Stone Paper Scissors and a recreation center where in 1995 Lynn founded an after-school multi-disciplinary arts program and continues to teach. This new elementary school was a community initiated project and part of the General Development Plan update for the park. Outdoor amphitheater and entry gates were designed in Lynn’s after-school art classes with 8-16 yr. old students, and community artists. Included were the design of a joint use School/City playground, mural, and color system for adjoining Recreation Center. In 1998 the project received an "Orchid" award from the San Diego County chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
