A mosaic was created using recycled materials which was collected by the children from Julio Otoni – it took the children 3 weeks to collect all the required material. The mosaic was designed by the Chilean/Mexican plastic artist Jose Maria “Kotik” Villela, his ideas of the mural were based on the theme of Capoeira. The construction of the mosaic took two weeks with help from volunteers and the children who worked hard to create the art on the wall of the community center. Through this creative process the children learnt about the possibilities of reusing items. The successful project resulted in an increasing ecological awareness of both the residents and children of the community.
