On May 10 the first panel out of the 8 was finished.
This was a very exciting benchmark to reach. I just counted the amount of school days left to work on it and it is only 16 but we are not stressed! We all feel the end is near as the final swirls of turquoise and cobalt blue in the ocean get glued down.
June 6- Michael Roy from Phi Designs will hang and frame the mosaic in the cafeteria
June 10- it will be grouted by Frank from Belfast EBS
I am not posting anymore pictures in the final days but hope everyone who is interested will attend the Camden-Rockport Middle School Fine Arts Night on June 14 from 5-8.
The official unveiling will be from 5-5:30pm.
We started thinking about this project in October
Ordered Materials in November
Started working on it in December
200 students have worked on it!
AND we will finish it in June!
A true school community collaboration
that will bring beauty to our learning environment
for years to come.
Thank you all for following the blog and I hope to see you on June 14! An enormous thank you to Youth Arts and Lana Arau, Michele Orne, Ingrid Ellison, Jenn Iott and Susan Taylor. These parent volunteers made this happen and I will miss seeing them every week. What's next year ladies?
One of the greatest movies ever (agreed) but none of the 3 things listed in the title are in the mosaic yet it SIMPLY had to be the title. I just spent the majority of my lunch taking footage of the mosaic with my andriod phone, posting it to youtube, copying from youtube to my desktop using keepvid.com, importing it to imovie to give it background music, posting it back on youtube to finally bring you this-
Phew! I am technologically tuckered!
The quality is not great and the music is what I had in my itunes library BUT it is a start and has inspired me to take more videos as this mosaic takes shape.
Are there any beach combers out there? I am in need of flat rocks in many colors (pink, white, black grey, bluish grey) to add to the mosaic. Rocks should be bigger than a walnut but smaller than a Yukon Gold potato. Please drop them off in the main office at the middle school in Camden.
