Martic Students Work Together on Bottle Cap Mural

Bottle cap artist Michelle Stitzlein visited Martic Elementary to talk about her work using recycled items in her art pieces and to help students do the same. Using bottle caps collected by the students over the past 18 months, the artist helped them create an 8′ x 12′ mural. Students prepared sketches of possible themes for Mrs. Stitzlein to review. She then created a design using some of those sketches. With the help of teachers, parents, and adult volunteers, every student at Martic Elementary will have a chance to contribute their talents to the mural. The colorful mural will be permanently displayed at Martic Elementary. The Penn Manor Education Foundation funded the grant request to bring the artist to Martic Elementary to help create the mural.
