Just wanted to tell you that I have just received this fresh off the printers. Thanks to Sara Daines from the City of Takoma Park for sending me these stickers for my car. Nice to see mosaic art work on a sticker.
A lot of you have been asking me about whether or not I will be having another arts camp this year. The answer is, " YES"!
This project is almost completed!!! We will be installing the finished work in the school’s media center by the end of the month.
Can’t wait to show you the finished mosaic, but here are some snippets of the works in progress.
Students at Sligo Middle School are in the process of creating a new art mural for the school media center. The main designs were created by combining elements from student drawings. The work reflects the spirit and meaning of what students want to share with the community about their school.
The ‘new’ art for LMS was installed this morning and now can be viewed from the corner of Weller Road and Goodhill Road. This beautiful addition was the vision of the principal and Loiederman PTA. This art was created and designed by the students and parents and faculty of Loiederman on October 11th.
I am starting a new series on the basics for working with communities. Every week I will show you the steps I take from start to finish on how the project will progress. I hope to share some of my ideas with you and get you excited about your projects.
Francis Scott Key students completed this mosaic with the help of staff and administration.
Been doing this project with the girls over at Waxter children's center. The girls are making letter sandwiches that are made out of cardboard and constructed with tape, glue and paper mache. Each girl is trying to express their world through the art they create on the surface of the letter.
I am out of commission these past few days and for a while. Just got a bad case of shingles and it is taking it's toll on me. This experience is giving me time to think as I lay in bed resting and healing, it makes me respect life even more.
Camp is now over but there are so many great memories that I will remember from this years. Me and Nick had a fantastic time teaching all the young artists about what we do in our fields. Please feel free to drop me a line if you wish to get in touch about next years' arts camp.
