PRIZE: A Mural and Garden For Our Community
Monday, March 18 to Friday, March 22, 2013
9:00 AM to 4:30 PM
Ages: 5 to 10
Value: $450 + HST
The Lyceum has been asked by the strata council of Highbury Towers (Highbury between W. 4th and 5th) to create a mural for a lane way wall bordering an empty lot near their property. During this week we?ll see this project through from beginning to end with the help of a dedicated group of young artists.
We’ll work together on a design and meet with the strata to get ?nal approval. We?ll prep the wall, gather our supplies and paint our designs into reality. We?ll also condition the soil in a small garden that is part of the wall and plant indigenous, drought resistant plants to add to the wild?owers that have been sown by other community members. Even if you live in a different community, this project is an opportunity to leave your mark on this one, and take away the tools and techniques you?d need to produce a similar work of art where you live.
Through our connections to community, we get in touch with other
experiences, and other ways of thinking. Students at the Lyceum have always valued opportunities to reach out to people in our community to collect their thoughts and stories and represent them in writing and art.
