TURNING TRASH INTO TREASURE

Middle School artists from schools throughout the county participated in this year’s Cooper MS Invitational, “Junk Yard Art Wars”. This art competition challenged students to rethink, reimagine, and reinvent the concept of what art is while contributing to the three R’s of recycling: reduce, reuse, and recycle. At least 40% or more of each artwork had to be created from recycled materials. Awards were given based on creative use of materials and overall impact and message. The work submitted was truly amazing!

Special thanks to Cooper MS Art teacher, Jamie Richardson, for hosting the competition!
