I love working with students to see their ideas become a reality. This Koi fish mural was done from the design of a Senior named Lucy, at Ventura County Christian School. Our ideas in our art class were to transform the boring white walls in the cafeteria to a relaxing place for the students to enjoy lunchtime. It was a great project to show how Interior Design can change a place.
The following tile pieces with the children, were done in a summer camp at my Art N' You studio in Camarillo. The smiling faces tell the excitement they had to break the tiles and then rearrange them into a work of art. Our lives are very much like that. Things happen in life and they don't look the same. With the help of the Creator, we can rearrange them into beautiful pieces of art.
I have also attached some murals that I have seen at a variety of places and was inspired by. I love the ocean so I was impressed by these ocean murals. And of course, I had to include some work by my favorite architect Antonio Gaudi and his famous mosaic lizard at the Park Guell! Gaudi's work brings joy to the heart. Amazing what a few pieces of broken tile, glass, and concrete can do for a city!
I have an upcoming Mosaic class July 2 and 3 from 1- 3 pm at my Art N' Studio in Camarillo. $55 includes supplies, students will break their own tile pieces, as well as use, pre-cut pieces to adhere them to either a 12" square or a plywood heart of similar size. Adults can join if they want to get in touch with their inner child! Please bring a drink as we will be working outdoors in the garden patio.
