About the event
In this course, you'll learn about the best materials for exterior mosaic art and help create mosaic "strips" to fill in the many cracks in downtown Bethel's sidewalks. We'll use colorful tiles, in the indirect method, to make mosaics in the shape of particular cracks; they'll be installed in the summer. Play a part in making our streets a bit more functional and a lot more beautiful!
