Color Outside the Lines

BTSALP Visual Artist, Alisa Webb, from North Ogden Elementary School (Weber State Region) recently hosted an art night during parent-teacher conferences.

Every student had more than one piece of art hanging throughout the school. Students and parents were able to see these amazing works of art all around their school.

Alisa was facilitating grade level art installations that will be permanently hung at North Ogden Elementary School. This year, each grade created a Crayon Mosaic made with recycled crayons donated by teachers and families in the community.

Students are recreating famous pieces of art, while also re-purposing materials that are no longer in use. Throughout the night, students and parents stopped by to add to the works of art. These installations will be finished and hung in the school at the end of the 2018-2019 year!

    Wheeeeee! This looks fun! I’d love to see more of the crayon murals once they’re finished. Great collaborative idea! And lord knows how many crayons exist in the “to be re-purposed” category. The aurora borealis skies look fabulous as well. Could we get a bit more info on process please? Thanks for the inspiration!
