Marin Tile & Mural Projects

Marin Mural ProjectMARIN 3rd GRADE "KIDS AT PLAY" MURAL PROJECT

Students at Marin Elementary School used an AEF grant to design and create a HUGE outdoor mural on the long east face of the playground retaining wall. The theme of the mural is kids at play, and the beautiful mural manages to capture the exuberant energy of the Marin students during recess. This was a collaborative project, involving all the 3rd grade students, with each student making an individual contribution to the successful outcome of the mural. Parent volunteers also helped during class time.

Marin Tile Project

MARIN GRADUATION TILE PROJECT

Funded by an AEF Mini-Grant, all 5th grade students at Marin School designed and created their own “Graduation Tile” as a final art project to commemorate their graduation from 5th grade and elementary school. The tiles form a graduation wall. The Graduation Tile project was designed and directed by Lisa Norman, Marin School Artist in Residence.

 

Marin Picture FrameMARIN MOSIAC PICTURE FRAME PROJECT

Marin school second graders used an AEF grant to create individual mosaic picture frames using glass tiles, sea glass, and mosaic marbles. Each frame was unique; some were patterned, and others abstract. Parent volunteers helped the students cut the tiles and grout the frames.

The lucky parents of these Marin second-grade students received a picture frame they will treasure forever. There is little doubt whose picture ended up in most of these framed works of art.
