Celebrating Cultures in Clay

Celebrating Multicultural week
Posted on 05/01/2019

In March staff and students came together bringing a multitude of cultural symbols, words, and designs to the table! Tiles were fired and installed along the courtyard path. 

Fenton’s multitude of cultures brings interest & strength to our community. To celebrate culture in clay students and staff  created tiles during their lunch periods. The directions were very simple:

1. Think about what word(s), images & symbols describe your culture.
2. Use Google Images or Pinterest to find ideas.
3. Create a quick sketch to layout idea-keep it simple : )
4. Dig out, build up, impress your ideas into the clay. 

These tiles were then fired and installed along the courtyard path during April’s Multicultural week.   

What a beautiful display of Fenton’s diversity! Thank you Mrs. Rieger and the Bensenville Arts Council for sponsoring this project.
