Students at Britton Elementary are creating a mural for the Wyland Foundation. The theme is Water is Life and the focus is the Big Darby watershed. Art Teacher Becky Rehbeck has connected with the Metroparks to bring in artifacts to draw and touch. This is whole school project that meets art curriculum standards to use the visual arts as a means to understand concepts and topics studied in disciplines outside the arts. They will also submit the mural to be displayed at the new Nature Center at Darby Creek which meets another art standard of using visual arts in their community and world around them. Connecting with the world through art is one way Hilliard City Schools are Ready For Tomorrow.
