I saw this Chinese New Year’s Dragon last year at Zarrow Art Center.  It was created as a collaborative, multimedia, recycling project.

Children from kindergarten through 6th grade students from Kendall-Whittier Elementary School took part under the direction of Art Teacher Kathleen Walker.  I think it is absolutely incredible.  What a great use of those pesky plastic bottles!

This art piece was so bright and cheerful sitting in the sunlight.

I love the colorful plastic bottles and other reused items that make up the main body.
