Politz students creating ‘upcycled’ works of art



Students at Politz Day School have taken “upcycling” to new heights. Children in Preschool and Kindergarten have learned about the value of recycling and have flexed their creative muscles with a variety of upcycled art projects this spring. Working with their teacher, Caryn Brody, the three-year Tziporim (Birds) class created a beautiful bird mosaic using a wide variety of recycled bottle caps. Pictured with the mosaic were (top, from left), Galia Ovitz, Michal Harris, Itay Lubin, and Eliav Elisha. Kindergarten students (bottom photo), in collaboration with art teacher Donna Moskowitz, created a sculpture inspired by the glass artist Dale Chilhuly by cutting and painting used plastic water bottles. Both works of art are being displayed in the Politz lobby. Students at Politz Day School have taken “upcycling” to new heights.
