Delmarva Scenes PotW: Coastal Clean-up Trash Art

Art Kent, MD Photo of the Week

KCPS Art Teachers Aimee Boumiea and Teresa Jetton discuss the student’s work with Tom McHugh and Wayne Gilchrest.

This photo of the Art Teachers involved with a Trash Art student project of Kent County Public Schools and the 5th grade Art classes at the system’s Elementary Schools is a fitting image as the first Photo of the Week. The project combined science and the arts. The students under the direction of former Congressman Wayne Gilchrest took part in the coastal clean-up on the banks of the Sassafras River. From the trash the students collected they selected items to be used in the Art Project. Their Art is now on display at the Kent County Public Library in Chestertown, MD until the end of January 2018.
