A mosaic was created with recycled materials that were collected by the children in the community. It took the children 3 weeks to collect the material needed to build the mosaic. The mosaic was designed by the Chilean/Mexican plastic artist Jose Maria "Kotik" Villela. The idea of the mural was based on Capoeira. The construction of the mosaic took two weeks with the help of volunteers and the children who worked hard to create the art at the entrance wall of the community center. The children learn about the possibilities of reusing items, increasing the ecological awareness of both the residents and children of the community with the wonderful idea creating art through recycling.
