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!"

"Attending Mount Mercy Academy is one of the best decisions I could have made. Since day one they have challenged me academically, to strive and succeed. For the past two years at Mount Mercy, I received so much help from all the teachers. They are always open to help me with any questions I have. My teachers have even taken time whenever they can to help me to do well with upcoming tests and quizzes. With their help I have been on both honor rolls, and have been a scholar athlete."
