Euclid Elementary, San Diego CA
Euclid Elementary in the San Diego neighborhood of City Heights just completed the second Rainforest Art Project program creating quality student art for their campus. For the second year in a row, the entire 5th grade class is joined hands to create a brilliantly colored mosaic eagle for the front of their school. In addition to their group mosaic project they are continuing the tradition of making personal ceramic leafs to be installed in their courtyard, the leafs will be joining those of last year’s 5th grade class.
It has been a real pleasure to see the student’s skills develop and their talent surface more with each project. There is a real sense of pride and excitement during each session because they realize they are making a difference.
“When I was younger I thought about being a Doctor; now I think about being an Artist and a Doctor. Art is a fantastic way of expressing yourself!”
- Mona, Euclid 5th grade student
“One day I will become an artist.”
- Mayra, 5th grade Euclid student
“The greatest thing is leaving my ceramic leaf as my legacy.”
