This 8-day workshop taught the students about the environmental problems associated with human overconsumption of resources and how the 3 Rs can help – reduce, reuse and recycle. During these 8 days, students created their own collages out of unwanted materials.  They took a virtual tour of the Utah Museum of Fine Art where they saw works of art made from unusual materials and relating to overconsumption.  Students learned about Haiku and created poems in that form, expressing the ideas that they had been learning.  On the final day of the workshop students shared the ideas and concepts they had learned over the 8 days, the Haiku poems created by the boys were shared with each group and the boys received a certificate of completion for all their hard work.
