This summer, we are so excited to be working with mosaic artist, Shylene Schlackl to put on a weekly mosaic making workshop at Royal Athletic Park.
Each week, you are invited to drop by the park, spend some time learning how to make mosaics, and contribute to a collaborative community art project. Together, we will make unique mosaic birds that will be installed throughout the North Park neighbourhood over the coming years.
Location: Royal Athletic Park (1014 Caledonia Ave)
Date: July 4, July 11, July 18, July 25, August 8, August 15 (dependent on Harbourcats playoffs), August 22.
Shylene started “Mosaic the City” (http://www.thecups.org/mosaic-the-city/
) in 2003, which means this incredible project will soon be celebrating it’s 20th birthday! Mosaic the City aims to bring people together to learn about each other while sharing in the creation of a unique mosaic art piece. Each project is community inspired, community designed and community built by the people who live, work, learn or shop in a neighbourhood.
Mosaic making requires the handling and working with cut glass and tile. For this reason, there will be a “Mosaic Team” of trained volunteers on hand to help Shylene make sure everyone is handling materials safely while still having fun.
Kids are welcome to participate, but do require caregiver participation! We will also have craft materials on site for younger kiddos who might not be ready for mosaic making quite yet.
– Each workshop will have a 25 person limit.
– No registration is required.
– Participants will be required to sign a waiver prior to joining in.
