Eagle’s Nest Students Recycle their Creative Side

Rachel Esposito, Elizabeth Stevens and Brooklyn Bowden are three of the seventh grade students who help conceptualize and make the recycling art project.

Students in the seventh grade class at Eagle’s Nest Christian Academy are using art to show others how to be good stewards of the environment. The students completed a hallway art project made completely of recycled materials that explains recycling humorously, clearly and Biblically. The students crushed soda cans and painted them to look like characters that tell the story of why recycling is important. Signs were made with recycled paper and newspaper and it was all tied together with verses from the Bible that explain that we must care for our Earth and all that we are given. The art is on display in a hallway near the school cafeteria so all students can see it as they walk to lunch.
