Students worked in groups to create their trashcans, after reading about public sculpture and its function in our society. Students brainstorm ideas for this functional art that must send an anti-trash message. This year we had 14 cans! After completion, all the teachers vote on their favorite one to submit. The owl was created from recycled cardboard, plastic lids, pipe insulation over hanger wire, paint, and LOTS of hot glue.
The students were very proud of their can and the Festus teachers thought these might be the best ones we've ever made.
