I am excited for an upcoming middle school project that will begin next month! I will be working with four 7th graders and eight 8th graders at Holbrook Elementary School, and will have help from their art teacher. These students are part of an after school program and were selected to work on this project due to their interest/ability in art. We will work for 6 weeks to complete a 3' square tree mosaic for their school cafeteria. I have been working steadily to compile a supply list, meet with administration, and work out the basic design. Ordering supplies began this week, and thanks to Ben of Ben's Flooring, I was able to get the substrate without having to drive 3 hours one-way to Biddeford. He met me in a parking lot in Bangor as he was driving through-what a nice man! I will order the glass next week, as well as the last of the supplies, and we will start work in October! I'll be sure to post progress photos of the project.
I am a glass artist from Maine.
