This “Noah’s Ark” sculpture above is part of an environmental community project run by Haggit Rich of SafsaPesel in Israel.
In her workshops, groups make usable sculptures for kindergartens, schools and parks. Once Rich and the children decide on a project, they collect materials such old bottles, tires and newspapers. These discarded items form the foundation. It’s a nice way to get kids creative and learning about environmental concepts. Read on for more pictures.
Teens prepare an urban sculpture.
The children then cover it with wire mesh and hand-mixed concrete. Haggit comes back several weeks later to paint.
