Teachers Create “Trashy” Animal Sculptures
Third through eighth grade teachers created animal sculptures from trash as part of Greenville County Schools’ Summer Academy. The workshop was designed for classroom teachers and art teachers who wanted to be creative with junk and discover ways to recycle materials at their schools. Participants designed charming animals from common trash in an inexpensive classroom project that students will love. The session was presented by Greer Middle School art teacher Louise Rogers.
Summer Academy is a three-week institute, from July 9 through 26, that offers hundreds of professional development courses for Greenville County Schools’ teachers, principals, administrators, counselors, and office staff. Teachers receive recertification points for completed courses. Courses include the areas of technology, elementary, middle and high education, PE, fine arts, foreign languages, special education, and much more!
