Piedmont Presents Earth Day: Protect Your Shelter
In honor of Earth Day, Piedmont Middle’s faculty and staff created an exhibit of artwork made from up-cycled/recycled materials. These works of art were made in conjunction with the “Give Me Shelter” Art in Education staff development workshops. Using 95% re-used, recycled, or re-purposed salvaged/found materials and treating it as quality art materials, teachers had one month to create their art work.
The exhibition’s goal is to stimulate environmental awareness, encourage conservation, and promote new ways of thinking about art, sustainability, and the environment.
