I have recently joined the ArtsEdNet conversation, and want to tell people
about this tile project which brings together tiles made by children in
different countries in the world to form a maze sculpture which will be
placed in a public park in Bronx, New York. Below is a list of particpants
as of now. We are still ironing out technical problems, such as no kiln in
Moscow and clay in Morocco which is inappropriate for New York winters. We
may be open to more participants in this country if anyone is interested.
Also, a colleague and I have started a website of Children's Tile and
Mosaic work around the world, and would definitely welcome info and photos
of interesting projects. Please check it out - the address is www.ecfs.org
- click on Projects. There are some marvelous projects pictured there.
I've enjoyed reading the entries and have collected and used some of your
ideas. Below are the current participants in the project.
