Green Scene Showcases Recycled Student Art Project
In this week’s episode, Green Scene highlights a recycled art project done by students at Arlington Traditional School and Yorktown High School. Yorktown art teachers Virginia Teaford and Drew Smith and their students are collaborating with ATS art teacher Veronica Perez and her students on the project with a theme of "Rainforest."
The fourth and fifth graders are using mostly plastic bottles to make insect mobiles and plastic curtains with beautiful plastic flower bottles attached to them. High school students are making their own sculptures of rainforest animals. They are all learning about the importance of conserving, reusing, recycling and are very excited for the collaboration. ATS art will be displayed in the Yorktown atrium beginning Feb. 24.
