Happy Earth Day!

One of my middle school student’s parents works for the General Services Administration at the Federal Building in Philadelphia, and contacted me about doing an art display in her building in honor of Earth Day.  As a mom of one of my students, she knows first hand about our Art is Elemental curriculum and thought it would be a great addition to their Earth Day festivities. How cool is that? Such a great opportunity!

We still had some spigots and flowers left over from last year’s “Tapped – a message from a bottle” installation, so we decided to give it an encore viewing! Three of my middle school students and one high school student volunteered to recreate it on a smaller scale!  Here are the students working to set it up (girls with power tools-love it). It will be on display for 2 weeks! Great job girls – Thanks Nancy!
