Community Mosaic Workshops at Crescent Farm

About This Event

3 Sundays / May 20, May 27, June 3

10:00am – 1:00pm / Crescent Farm

Join Piece by Piece and Crescent Farm for an opportunity to contribute to the Crescent’s community stepping stone mosaic project! Crescent Farm’s stepping stones serve as a gateway to the garden, drawing eyes and visually reinforcing the ecological concepts at the heart of the Crescent’s mission. While you will be learning from professional mosaic artists, this isn’t your typical individual-oriented art class; this is a space to engage in collaborative creation, working together to construct the artistic foundations of one of the Arboretum’s most impactful gardens!

Piece by Piece is a wonderful organization, with the mission “To provide low-income and formerly homeless people free mosaic art workshops using recycled materials to develop marketable skills, self-confidence, earned income and an improved quality of life.” They’ve created some of the most iconic mosaic pieces in Los Angeles, including the legendary mosaic “The Water Cycle” at the Crescent Farm information kiosk. To find more information, see their past works, and view art for sale, visit http://www.piecebypiece.org/. They will also have a pop-up booth for art sales on-site during the May & June workshops!
