Once again, I thank the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts for what they do to make projects like this possible. This was a tremendous undertaking for these kids. I am just unbelievably proud of them. Over half of the fifty foot mosaic was covered by seventh and eighth graders! Some of the classes only had a handful of kids in them. One of the cutest things is how wonky the letters are in Walt's name. That was a student's idea. A different student suggested that we use a mouse for the dot in his i.
One day when I asked them to clean up, they grumbled that they wanted to continue mosaicking a little longer. I said they could if they promised to clean up fast. They did!
The goal was to make something colorful for above the book shelves in their school library. This is a photoshop mock up of what it should look like once it is installed. For the record, I FIRMLY believe this Disney quote. Yeah, dreams coming true.
