FMSA's "Scary Crow" Stakes Out a Place in the Garden
FMSA's "Scary Crow" Stakes Out a Place in the Garden
Fall is a great time to explore Atlanta! First Montessori School of Atlanta's "Scary Crow" and more than 100 other wild and crazy scarecrows are scattered throughout the Atlanta Botanical Garden through Oct. 30. The scarecrows were designed by metro area residents, artists, businesses and organizations. This is the second year that First Montessori School of Atlanta has participated in the special event. "Scary Crow" was designed and handcrafted by the Middle School students using chicken wire, aluminum foil, cheese wax, a 2x4, black paint and a traffic cone. The students cut hundreds of leaf-shaped feathers from aluminum foil and then individually applied them to the chicken wire frame. "This entry reflects the creativity children are exposed to at First Montessori School of Atlanta," said Head of School Jerri King. "Scarecrows can be scary, funny or even practical. Our creativity is only limited when we permit it to be." Located on Long Island Drive in Atlanta, First Montessori School of Atlanta is the Southeast's oldest Montessori school. It serves the needs of students ages 18 months to 14 years.
