5th graders at Forest Trail Elementary recently finished a mosaic service project in which they used tile, plates, and bowls to create a beautiful mural!
Austin Creative Reuse was delighted to donate the plates and bowls to their project! They did such an amazing job!
Thank you for giving us the colorful plates and bowels. The kids had a blast breaking them up into pieces! They incorporated the donated Austin Creative Reuse tiles within some of the butterflies, flowers and birds. It helped bring interest to the piece.
This is one of those brilliant ways teachers are reusing items in projects to educate kids about art and reuse. We’re really excited to help them with gathering materials for the project.
Isn’t the finished piece beautiful?
Second through fourth graders at a Clayton Elementary after-school program found a way to keep plastic lids out of the landfill and beautify their school at the same time. Using multicolor and various sizes of lids, they are in the process of creating two murals for display at their school. Art teacher Nancy Hallmark says the entire school community has been contributing plastic lids for this project. Great work, guys!
