As recent winners of the City of Dublin Utility Box Design Contest, Ms. Shin's IB Art students completed their artwork for one of the city's boxes.
Last semester, IB Art 2 students: Angelica, Wayne, Jerry, Lucy, Seung Woo, Feather, Keya, Molly, Jessie, and Amanda; painted a utility box for the city of Dublin with the help of their teacher Ms. Shin. They entered a contest to design one of the city's utility boxes and were chosen as one of the winning teams to move forward with their design. As soon as they got approval, they began working on painting the box. This year's theme for the contest was "My American Backyard," and in keeping in line with the theme, students painted trees with four leaf clovers to represent the city of Dublin. On each of those clovers, they painted a flags of a countries that a lot of Dublin residents originate from in order to symbolize the multi-ethnic spirit of the city. They also painted branches shaped in the form of sports and activities that residents often partake in. Upon completion of their project, the city of Dublin award the students $1000 for their efforts.
