  •  Mikerson the troll

    Troll masters: Cathcart Elementary students create recycled art with heart and purpose

    Meet Mikerson, a troll created by students in Carrie Henderson’s class at Cathcart Elementary. Mikerson, is the product of a collaboration between the class, art docent Liz Olson, and inspiration from Danish sculpture artist, Thomas Dambo. Students used all recyclable materials and a lot of imagination to help design the large troll which now sits as the protector of the school’s outdoor classroom. In addition, each student designed and constructed min-trolls and inspired by Dambo’s tradition of giving each troll a unique name and story, they crafted names and stories for their own troll creations as well. To read more about how Mikerson, the eco-friendly guardian came to be, please visit: www.sno.wednet.edu/news/troll.
