Community Art Projects
What I find with mosaic projects is that everyone is on a level playing field - they are all novices at mosaics and work together and learn. These projects get people to meet up and come up with a beautiful solution to a challenge!

Planning for a Community Art Project

The community group thinks up a wish list of themes. These can include anything from nature, heritage, environmental themes like recycled art, school teams, values, cultural themes, and so on. Think about the message you want to shout about!

 Then they take the ideas and make them into drawings, and symbolism is a great way to express many of these ideas into the medium of mosaic. For example, Deyes High School pictured right, have used the Olympics, musical notes, drama, school ties, and more to fill their fantastic Mural. The mosaic design for the base can be done by the students or professionally drawn by Chrissy. In may cases, the students take this on themselves which creates a more informal, handmade appeal. This self expression is also very empowering. It's your choice as to which style you prefer.

Mural projects usually take at least six class sessions, but this can depend on the size and complexity. A variety of short craft activities are also available, please contact me to discuss. Please see examples at Family Events.

Please have a browse through the Fundraising Factsheet below to see the wide range of opportunities available. Murals start at around £500. Level of detail can affect time taken on a project.
