Cool School Benches
These school benches were inspired by children’s drawings, and they were created using recyled materials such as road signs and car parts.

Notes about this project (from “Art in the Schools,” published at To Make You Smile):
Our dream is to help the next generation look at “junk” with an eye to re-use. For the past three years, we’ve created and managed the Art in the Schools Bench Project funded by Cracked Pots. As a part of Art Literacy, students study assemblage art, look at pictures of junk, and create drawings of a bench. Inspired by these drawings, an artist is commissioned to create a bench for permanent display at the school.
