Overview of Idea

:

The project I am proposing involves teaching students how to create mosaic pathway in the Till Learning Garden. The participants will be introduced to the history of mosaics and 8-bit video game characters. Essentially, this is a mosaic and sculpture project completed by an after school art club.

The Specifics: What will the $5,000 fund?

The materials needed for this project will be used for making a permanent large-scale art project at the Till Learning Garden. Starting in the fall, my after school art club will begin a series of workshops with the main objective of helping students master mosaics. The after school art program will run for 4 months totaling 32 sessions or 48 instructional hours. The program will have between 18 and 25 middle school participants. By the end of the workshops, the students will have completed a mosaic walkway, and concrete seating for an outdoor classroom located in the school’s learning garden. The funding will go towards buying concrete, tiles, glue, and grout to construct a pathway and seating.

This is pretty cool, hopefully it works out and maybe even goes further. You can start with a garden pathway then maybe on to Park pathway
or even walls. Good luck!

Great idea - excellent way to teach kids about the art of mosaic through something that they can all relate too - i.e. video games characters!
