Sample Partner Programs

Greenfield School

Greenfield School 5th grade students explored the concept of client change and created a guide for action. The project included the study of atmospheric structure, green house gases, oceans, and human land usage. The resulting mosaic was constructed by all of the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade classes. 

Philadelphia Zoo

Working with a group of students from Peirce Elementary School in North Philadelphia, the NetworkArts’ staff constructed a 50-foot long, 9-foot high educational mosaic at the Philadelphia Zoo.  The final mosaic, located at the entrance to the Children’s Zoo, depicts the animal life of our region, and is designed to enable children and their parents to explore in detail the variety of our local animal life.  Sponsored by Comcast Corporation.

Franklin Institute

NetworkArts worked with students from the Institute’s PACTS program to create two mosaic panels offering instruction in environmental stewardship.  The first celebrates the legacy of three environmental heroes – Rachel Carson, Wangari Maathai, and George Washington Carver.  The second suggests steps we all can take to help solve our most pressing environmental problems. They are located on the museum’s first floor near the students’ cafeteria.   Many teachers, students, and parents will have an opportunity to examine the mosaics’ visual and educational text.  Sponsored by Rohm and Haas Company.

St. Raymond’s Elementary School

The students created a mosaic celebrating over 60 individuals throughout the world who have contributed to world peace. Each such individual is represented by a student sculpted portrait. There are also many biographies in the mosaic.
