Palm Pointe Art Students Create Recycled Material Masterpiece

Palm Pointe Middle School art students worked hard to create a beautiful recycling art project.  It took two months and over 900 water bottles all from our school, that would have gone in the trash/landfill. This gorgeous piece of artwork will be displayed at the Oxbow Ecocenter in celebration of Earth Day at their festival on April 22nd. There are expected to be over 7,000 attendees!  Way to go Mrs. Wessel and the Palm Pointe artists for turning trash into treasure!
