Students in Cynthia Pease’s art classes have been working on creating pieces focused on raising awareness about the things that are harming the planet, with everything from harmful chemicals in our food to carbon monoxide exhaust floating into the air from gas- and diesel-powered vehicles.

“It's a serious issue,” said senior Eliza Borntraeger, who is not one of the students involved in the art project but has been involved as a mentor, as her senior exhibition project is about creating a smaller carbon footprint at the school.

“Coming into my senior year I am definitely aware of global warming, and the goal is to spread that awareness,” she added. “When I graduate I’ll pass the torch, and we want to be able to feel confident that it’ll continue to be passed down even way after we’re gone.”
