Maxfield's Mosaic Project is Underway

We've been talking about it.  We've been planning it.  Hurray! The mosaic project is underway.   Thank you to Lori Greene from Mosaic on a Stick for organizing, planning, instructing and working with us on the mosaic project to turn this air intake in our courtyard into something beautiful for our community.

Yes, we are in the early stages of the project, but the work has been wonderful to share with students in Maxfield's Project Spirit after school program.  Watching young students work together with teen mentors was wonderful.  It was a bit of magic watching the teen mentors begin to develop their skill and craft with cutting tile, assisting younger students and have fun while working with the mosaic.  A big shout out to Mr. Lyles and Mr. Hill for their commitment and enthusiasm in organizing their students to 'make their mark' on Maxfield in a very positive manner.

Stay tuned for updates and opportunities to help with the project.
