- King Science Middle School – Collaboration with No More Empty Pots & Omaha Truck Farm – Students worked with ceramist Katie Temple to create a series of traditional Ollah pots out of unglazed clay. Pots were submerged into the garden to keep plants watered through Omaha’s dry and humid summer.
- Students at Morton Middle School work with WhyArtist Kim Darling to create a large canvas work — Over a series of 8 workshops students created their own “marks” and using techniques of layering, color mixing and stenciling and iconography to fill the space — the result was amazing!
- Other schools enjoyed a variety of other summer arts projects with WhyArtists
