Elementary School LibraryGo Back
In 2010 the 5th Graders at the Redwood Elementary School in West Orange NJ created the tiles for this installation as their legacy gift to the school. Funds raised for graduation activities paid for each 5th grader to be represented on the wall.
Their art teacher Lisa Shapiro Schustak guided the children to create a self portrait of themself reading their favorite book. The illustration on the cover of the book could not be copied from the book but had to be a design of their own.
The individual tiles were installed in the school library media center. The yellow and blue painted wall ties in the school colors to complete the installation
