Gary Moskowitz NORTHWEST DISTRICT -- Leslie Krueger's concern with the environment made one particular art assignment in her senior year a tough one to do. She was given a wine box made of wood from a 1,000-year-old redwood tree and asked to replicate an existing painting on the box as a way of creating a new piece of art. The fact that redwood trees had been cut down to make wine boxes upset Krueger. What Krueger, 18, came up with earned her an Arnold Directory Art Scholarship fund of $500 that she will put toward fall semester tuition at California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland.

The children shook and rattled the paint-covered marbles inside the paper-lined cardboard box with gusto, opened the box and pulled out the paper to reveal abstract paintings of crazy, zigzagging lines.
