CANADA 150 MOSAIC - GET INVOLVED!

The Canada 150 Mosaic project is coming to Airdrie Alberta and we want you to have a chance to be a part of it!!!

Communities across Canada are coming together to create a mural that will connect Canada through Art. Our city will create a section of the mural made up of 400 individual tiles that symbolize our community. This piece will become a stand alone mural showcased in Nose Creek Park and will become part of a visual time capsule for this national unified project of over 80,000 tiles.

We will need Volunteers & Painters to pull this project off!

Painters!

We are inviting local participants to paint on mosaic tiles in workshops facilitated by our Canada 150 Mosaic team.

On 4×4 inch tiles, using brushes and paint, participants will be encouraged to leave their mark by creating a painting that represents their community from their own perspective. Every painting will be a story and will become a piece of a much bigger story.

Painting will take place at MUKLUK MAGPIES, 103, 2966 Main St. SE in Airdrie (across from Airdrie Honda).

Individuals: We have reserved tiles for professional artists, youth and newcomers to Canada – so please indicate if you belong to any of these groups when you register.

Groups: If your organization would like to apply as a group, we can accommodate up to 8 people per organization. Groups are responsible to arrange their own transportation and permissions. (One tile to be painted per person.)

Volunteers!

Teams will be painting the tiles in shifts at MUK LUK MAGPIES,103, 2966 Main St. SE in Airdrie .   The painting will take place over two days to accommodate everyone.

We need seasoned and engaging artists to facilitate participants as they work on their tiles and help support the directives of the 150 Mosaic team.
