Earth's BountyEarth's BountyEarth's Bounty

A collaborative art project featuring paintings by Roger Quist Middle School students and 17th Judicial District Attorney staff.

Quist teachers Taylor Marino Fallik, 8th grade Science, and Beth Marks-Berner, 8th grade English Language Arts, created a unique art club comprised of Quist students and District Attorney staff. 

From October 2021 to February 2022, students and staff created more than 100 oil pastel paintings and 60 paper butterflies. Each of these artworks represents the wonder of Earth and is a visual response to the simple but powerful question: WHAT DOES THE EARTH GIVE US?
