Fish Galore

I apologize for neglecting my blog for a few weeks. Unfortunately, it's probably not going to get any better until the fall. House stuff. But, in the meantime, I have these beautiful pictures to share with you. This sculpture was done by elementary school students, from kindergarten to maybe 4th graders. The smaller ones, done by the younger kids, are at the top and get larger as they hang down.

The making of this project was coordinated by one amazing art teacher. It was a year long in the making and hangs in the foyer of the Camden Elementary School.

This years project was installed in the Middle School and is a mural made of 47,000 small tiles.

Both of these are on my to do list...find out HOW (to tile), WHAT (are those fish made of), and then DO!

Wow, What an art teacher! I'm looking forward to seeing photos of the progress on the house some day.

Wow she does seem to be an incredible art teacher. The fish are so bright they seem to glow. And the mosaic is beautiful.
I look forward to hearing more.
