For the Arts Milton Community Art Project we decided to do a 3-dimensional project. There was a little prep required for this project but it was all worth it. Home Depot Milton our gracious sponsor for the Arts Milton community project every year, fabricated wooden cubes in varying sizes between 2 feet to 5 feet. I decided to go with the grain of the wood and outlined the organic forms and shapes. It was a joy to see the transformation of these wooden cubes when residents from the community filled these organic forms with bright, bold colours.
This year the theme for Arts Milton’s community mural was inspired by Kandinsky’s famous painting – “Squares with Concentric Circles”. Participants created in their own style circular patterns and designs on 4×4 ceramic tiles. The tiles were assembled at a later date to create a Kandinsky style mural mosaic.
