AMAZING ARTWORK IN PROGRESS: Butterfly Bottle Cap Mural!

Talk about an amazing piece of artwork!! 

You may remember Art teacher Mrs. Phelps requesting all sizes and colors of bottle caps this year!

Well, it’s still in progress – but let’s take a peak at the BIG art project middle school students who are in art, the Leadership class and some fifth grade students have been working hard on.

To Start…

Mrs. Phelps and art students began with a four-foot by eight-foot piece of wood.

A design was chosen, and the team got to work. The team knew they wanted to make a mural with “50” on it since this year marks the 50th anniversary of Tucson Country Day School!  


Check out all the colorful bottle caps!


The Mural is Growing…

It’s coming along…and turning into a butterfly!

Now that the butterfly (Can you spot “50” in its wings?) is complete, these budding artists are working on the rest of the mural. 


Pretty amazing! This sure shows how teamwork can go a long way – and make beautiful masterpieces!
