Wild Art Mural Unveiling: RuckusRoots in the News!

After months of planning and hard work with 200 students from Hawthorne, CA, we finally unveiled our mural at Eucalyptus Elementary School last month! We spent a great afternoon with the 4th graders who participated in our Wild Art program as we celebrated their beautiful artwork and the creative reuse skills they learned throughout the program. The mural, composed of thousands of repurposed plastic bags collected by the students and turned into paintable canvases, is now installed in the school cafeteria for them to enjoy for years to come! Students also learned about urban wildlife throughout the program, and how their creative skills can be used to help nature and improve their community.
