Character Defined Through ‘Cerealism’

Using consumer brand packaging, Shore Road sixth-grade students in the Bellmore School District created a collage of words that define leadership through an art process called cerealism. 

The brightly-colored legacy artwork was the culminating project of a workshop held by pop artist Michael Albert. Albert is known for his use of consumer brand packaging, such as cereal boxes, and various reusable materials to create unique collages with powerful messages.
 
During the workshop, the students searched for words that define leadership from a variety of recyclable cardboard boxes, including cereal boxes. The words were cut out and glued onto a canvas to create a 147 word collage to highlight the district’s leadership principles and core values. The Class of 2018’s legacy art will hang in the school’s hallway as a reminder for students to practice leadership principles.
