THE STORY:

A Mosaic Garden Mural at Harding Elementary School in El Cerrito, CA. The mural will be installed near the community garden on the low, bare concrete wall. It will be garden themed with flowers, bees a beehive or two, butterflies, caterpillars, dragonflies, grasses and pond with fish and frogs The total area is about 310 sq.feet. Another parent, Anja Hakoshima, and I are teaching a mosaic class after school to get the project going but we have a long way to go.
We need money for materials.
All labor will be volunteer.
I made the first beehive and we installed it in November. It really helped get the students and community excited.
We plan to have as many students as possible participate in the making of tiles and or creating images to be a part of the mural. We will have teams of volunteers go into the classrooms and work with the students. The pieces are made on a mosaic mesh fabric and can be easily installed with thinset which will then be grouted.
If you are local we would greatly appreciate any old tile you might have.
If you are farther away we would greatly appreciate a donation in any amount to help us create this wall for the children at our neighborhood public school. Donate through this site to have it tax deductible. Again, if you are local and could donate any amount large or small (every dollar helps) you can get it to me directly.
The students at Harding only get art ONE HOUR a MONTH. We think that is a tragedy and are trying to do something about it. We want to get every child involved in making art, brightening their visual experience and stimulating their creativity.
Please help us. Every little bit counts.
