On Tuesday, May 16, 2017 Concord Elementary Students, families, and staff participated in a three day, large scale art project called Art For The Sky. The image was a 100 by 100 foot Tree of Life, a symbol of Concord Elementary School's dedication to protecting nature. 500 people, wearing specific colored t-shirts, were each a "colored dot" in the giant tree. 

The project was directed by Daniel Dancer, the school’s Artist in Residence, who has done over 250 Art For The Sky pieces all over the country. The project has a very meaningful message about protecting and saving the earth, to see the earth from a different point of view, the sky. The project was organized by Concord Elementary Art Teacher, Julie Brncich.

"The project is not only a beautiful piece of art, but also has a very powerful message, and is cross curricular, covering math, science, history, and music," Brncich said.
