Ellie is a 7th grade student at FBCS. When Ellie is not creating artwork, she is cheering for FBCS sports. Ellie loves art and feels it provides a way to forget about your troubles and it gives you a way to express yourself. Currently she is making doll furniture for her sister out of popsicle sticks. Ellie made the artwork featured in the picture above from recycled materials. Here is what she wrote about it:
My sculpture looks like a tower you would see in a big city. My sculpture is about how you can take scraps and leftover or useless things no longer needed, to make something cool. My piece is titled "Scrap Needle" because it resembles the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington. The tower is full of all different colors added on top of one another and it has a unique shape and textures that are rough, rugged, smooth and bumpy. The proportions are also unique. The shape is evenly balanced out by the placement of the materials and supplies.
