And the San Pedro High Community Outreach Club, which links the community to students and students to the community, helped to bring it all together in one big sweeping project – an attempt to build a tsunami wave out of plastic bottles in the school’s senior court area.
Excited students gathered last week to begin the tsunami, weaving in out plastic strips through the fence and eager to see the outcome. Some students are even encouraging the community to participate.
Said Dominique Rubens, 18, a senior, who helped generate the art work: “It is a beautiful project. It’s sending a blessing of consciousness through a wave of a tsunami. I think it will teach kids there’s a fun way to use recyclables and given them a different perspective. And it gives them a great sense of art.”
