Mills Lawn School Sign
This is the result of an art residency I did at our local elementary school. I worked for several weeks with the three classes of 5th graders. I composed an entire unit to really teach the children about mosaics and give them a feeling for what they could do within this medium.
The kids had a fabulous time as did I. They created their own motifs that I could never have imagined. Then I opened up the option to the rest of the community one Sunday afternoon for folks to come and make their contribution to this permanent installation in Yellow Springs. Several people came, particularly with their young children yet to enter the school. Here’s a bit of what resulted from this endevor.
