Every Twig Makes a Difference - PATHS and Lyseth Elementary School

Visiting artist, Nantz Comyns, has guided and worked with students from Portland Arts and Technology High School and Lyseth Elementary to create four larger-than-life animal sculptures from birch-twigs. Comyns met with the high school students at PATHS to teach and mentor the construction process. On May 21st, Comyns and some of the PATHS students will visit Lyseth Elementary and collaborate with the students there to complete the sculptures. These sculptures will be a joint venture between Portland Trails' School Grounds Greening Coalition, Lyseth's greening and grounds committee, teachers and students at PATHS and Lyseth as well as volunteers from the United Way.

The visiting artist and Twig Sculpture project were made possible by a grant from the Portland Education Foundation (PEA)
