Artworking with the Wetlands

Olive Elementary School fifth graders have been working on an Art/Science Fusion project at the Hamilton Wetlands Nursery.  These fifth grade students embarked upon a multi-faceted environmental and educational process melding natural science, creative arts and public education on behalf of the Hamilton Wetlands Restoration Project (HWRP). 

This fresco was created by Ane Carla Rovetta and Mrs. Rozoff’s students.  Each student researched and recreated an indigenous animal of the Hamilton Wetlands on a mural tile. Every part of the mural is made from recycled materials, including  the paints and glue which were created from  the milk protein, Casein. Even the fresco plaster is designed to leach unhealthy hydrocarbons from the air.  The purpose of the mural is to promote an understanding and appreciation of this  fragile wetlands ecosystem which is slowly being restored after the breaching of the Hamilton levee in April 2016.
