Going Green in the Art Room

by cnewman

This year in Mrs. Jennifer Licata's classrooms, the focus is "Going Green." All of her classes are concentrating on eco-conscious habits like recycling as much as possible (which is challenging in an art room!), using "green" cleaners and art materials, saving energy when using our computers, printers, and cameras, going paperless (which has really been made possible with our classroom blog), and learning about eco-artists and creating eco-art. Mrs. Licata states, "Mercy art students have been very receptive - my recycling has been overflowing and my trash has been minimal. They also seem to be really interested in the green materials we have been using - wanting to know where they came from and what they are made out of!"

"Mercy is more than just a school. Mercy is my second home and a shoulder to lean on. Mount Mercy has given me the confidence and resources to pursue my passions and make the world a more inclusive place, propelling me to take strides into male-dominated fields. Mercy blessed me with an environment to grow intellectually and in the community, giving me the foundation to make a tangible impact while making lifelong friendships."
