Over the winter, 19 young artists participated in a special four-part STEM workshop called Tiles of the Wild.  Under the guidance of our artist/instructor Jessica Dubin,  each participant created a hexagonal tile depicting a Hudson Valley animal.  What a thrill it was to finally uncover the beautiful mural created by our group. 

It was hard to keep our mural under wraps, but we did our best: T1

And now it’s time to cut the ribbon and reveal the mural:

And here is our beautiful mural:Tiles Mosaic.jpg

We all felt happy to have been a part of this fabulous workshop! Tiles Group Shot at Ribbon Cutting in front of mural

Here are some more pictures of our mural -and of our appreciative audience (many of whom were workshop participants and families!):
