Local artist Leo Stanley is celebrating America Recycles Day with an art exhibition at the Central Community Library (8601 Mathis Avenue) the whole month of November.
Eight year old Leo is part of the Gifted and Talented program at R.C Haydon Elementary School, right here in the City of Manassas. He enjoys creating recycled art because it's fun to do and it's also a good way to reuse non-disposable things. He uses everything from coffee stirrers to the "little treasurers" he finds like paper clips, beads and string.
When Leo is not creating something new and incredible; he likes hanging out with his two pet cats, playing with his Legos, and just having fun. Leo likes science and math - his mom, dad, and little brother too. He dreams of being an architect, aeronautical engineer, or a futurist. He would like to study how things fly.
He has a message for everyone this November: "Recycling is good and keeps the planet clean."
