Green Art


Marina is a first grader at McKinley Elementary School in Fairfield, CT. She has been creating art and practical items out of reusable items and would love to share her passion of creativty with others. It all began with a bag of items that would have typically be thrown out, egg cartoons, cereal boxes, paper towel tubes, orange juice containers, etc...and that her mom was trying to find a less expensive way to entertain her passion for arts & crafts projects. Juice pouch coin purses, egg cartoon flower arrangements, bird houses made out of books, are just a few of her favoirte projects. With this initiative she hopes that other students will find creative ways to reuse items and get their artistic juices flowing.
