CA Wildflower Mosaics Are Up and Awesome! A community project with Edna Brewer Middle School

We've been working hard with Edna Brewer Middle School students to create these fabulous 16 large native California wildflower mosaics for the courtyard of their school. Now the flowers are installed and we are all thrilled with the results! Over 300 students participated in making the mosaics. The project integrates lessons in science, art, ecology, sustainability, hands-on skill development, landscaping, and campus beautification. 

Last weekend was the big installation and parents, teachers, families and fellow mosaics artists came from all over to help. We seriously couldn't have done it without them! Now the dreary side of the courtyard sings with color and the students are asking for more!

Special thanks to Kathy DeRosas (project spearhead and organizer), Jeri Schnieder (teacher extraordinaire), Tracy Davis (mosaic artist volunteer), Kathy Law (mosaic artist volunteer), the PTSA and all the students and volunteers who helped make this project!

Mosaic Flowers Community Installation This Week!

Students at Edna Brewer Middle School did a super job creating 16 big flower mosaics! Over 300 students participated in the project, and we've been working with them over four days in the classroom to create the mosaics. It has been a whirlwind and a blast! Each panel depicts a California native wildflower and will be installed on walls of the school's inner courtyard this week.
Volunteers are invited to participate in the installation. If you would like to join us for a day or even an hour email Rachel here. The schedule is posted below. It's going to be great to get the mosaics up and see them on the wall! For more info on the project check out my last  blog post.  Hope to see you soon!
