Help turn trash into art and get your students involved in conservation ACTION!
Collect waste materials from homes, the classroom, or from a waterway or land that you cleaned as a group. Materials could be disposable cups, shopping bags, bottle caps, cardboard, anything! Then, work together to create a work of art that portrays a form of nature such as trees, mountains, flowers, etc. All art is appreciated, no matter how abstract it may be! Remember, materials must be used with their original colors. No spray painting please! You must use trash or recyclables. Maximum art project size is 3’x3’x5′.
There will be three age groups: Primary (K-2nd), Elementary (3rd-5th Grade), Middle (6th-8th Grade), and High School (9th-12th Grade).
One class from each age group will win a FREE field trip to the Hattiesburg Zoo for up to 25 students and 4 instructors (including bus drivers). This deluxe field trip will include admission, educational presentation, train rides, and ropes course!
The works of art will be displayed and judged at the Hattiesburg Zoo during our Earth Day Celebration on April 20, 2019. Please drop off your creations at the Zoo Office anytime between 10AM and 4PM on April 15-17.
