This collaborative art project is based on the book, Only One You, by Linda Kranz. It celebrates the uniqueness of each child within a larger “school of fish.” Each child’s brightly painted fish rock will join the “school of fish,” swimming together, and symbolizing our children entering the world. Altogether, around 6,000 rocks will be painted by Hudsonville art students in grades K-12. Stop out and enjoy the art!
Thanks to Linda Kranz for permission to enter this project in ArtPrize.
Thanks to Jessica Moyes at Sharon Elementary for the inspiration.
Thanks to Maggie Bandstra (Alward Elementary) and Celine Nienhouse (South and Forest Grove Elementary Schools) for securing our fantastic venue and coordinating the installation!
