Longfellow Elementary After School Program Honored!

This year, Green Arts Workshop came to Longfellow Elementray and did some fabulous artwork with all the After School students using recycled objects. Green Arts Workshop encourages participants to consider their personal consumption and to draw inspiration from art that reflects a commitment to environmentally sustainable behavior. Green Arts came to the After School Program once a week for all of the Spring semester. Every group in the program spent two sessions working with Green Arts. The theme for this year was (protecting) sea animals.

The artwork was made by Longfellow students using recycled and environmentally-friendly objects. For example, the students created jellyfish out of recycled CDs. The groups also spent a lot of time making whales out of discarded cardboard and environmentally-friendly paint. The underlying message behind these workshops is to promote environmental awareness among school-age children. Green Arts decided to highlight student artwork from our after school program for their art exhibition at the District Supervisor's office. During the event, our students and their work were honored by District 11 Supervisor John Avalos. The students also received a tour of City Hall.
