School Projects



Bellow Spring Elementary
Columbia, MD

When Bellows Spring underwent a renovation several years ago, a wall of windows in the cafeteria was blocked in, leaving blank niches in this large wall. Art teacher Rebecca Rubock wanted to do something creative with the space, a project that would connect with the entire school community. Since eating a meal is a communal activity we can all relate to, she had students vote of their favorite foods. This series of mosaics were created by the students to represent their favorite dishes. Students in the lower grades made and glazed the tiles. Students in the upper grades put the mosaics together and did the grouting. Parents and staff members helped. It was truly a project created by the entire school community (2016).
