Tile Art Project

Verde Elementary School

Richmond, California

Ceramic tiles have been designed and glazed by 3rd and 4th grade elementary school students from Verde School in Richmond, California. The tiles will be used to decorate recycling containers at the school and in the surrounding neighborhood. Verde School is in a low-income area of North Richmond.

The North Richmond Community Housing and Development Corporation sponsored the recycling container tile project as a way of creating community pride and ownership for the children and residents of the area.
