Students build eco-chandelier

DANVILLE — An environmentally friendly chandelier has been created and is permanently on display in the Danville Primary School. Kindergarten, first- and second-graders helped make the chandelier from 600 water bottles.

Kindergarten and first-graders helped paint the bottles using watered-down acrylic paint and glitter, according to elementary art teacher Jessica Noel.

They used shades and tints of green, blue and purple.

Second-graders helped cut all the water bottles into a spiral design.

With assistance from Jimmy Roberts and Nancy and Erin Weigle, the bottles were assembled onto a base.

The chandelier is the latest legacy project created at the school.
