We facilitated 5 mosaic-making sessions with seniors at a long-term care centre. We cut out the templates from plywood and prepared a big selection of materials, and we provided coaching and direction. The actual work was done by the residents, none of whom had done this kind of thing before. I think they did a great job, and it was a great pleasure to watch these folks become engaged with the project. The photo above shows the work created by the seniors.
Just in time for the Mississauga Garden Festival on June 23rd, 2019 – Long Branch Mosaics will be set up for the day in the Marketplace Artists & Artisans zone. The Festival is free, with plenty of activities for all ages. It runs rain or shine from 10am-4pm in Riverwood Park. Come out and enjoy!
