Today, nine middle school students, seven high school students, and my colleague Mrs. Ellis, volunteered their time to set up the middle school art show and this year’s school wide art installation, “Tapped – a message from a bottle”.
“Tapped” consists of nine faucets made from soda bottles, paper, tape and plaster craft. The running water pouring from the spouts are water bottle caps linked together. The flowers are created from cut water bottles and colored with sharpies. The fish are made from disposable shopping bags. All of these items have been collected and reused by the students to help create this installation. From September to now, it’s truly been a collaborative effort!
Thanks to all of my students for helping to make this installation a reality and for being such smart, interested and dedicated students and art makers! You make my job fun and rewarding. You’re the best!
