More than 2,000 students in grades 3-6 are taking part in this year's area-wide art project, “Mosaic Mania! Breaking Glass, Expanding Minds.” The project, now in it's fourth year, is intended to promote creativity among youth and showcase rural Minnesota's commitment to the arts.
Classrooms of students from Circle of Life, Detroit Lakes, Frazee, Home School Groups, Lake Park-Audubon, Perham, and Waubun-Ogema were all invited to take part in the project. Students learn the art of glass mosaics by making a 5"x5" glass mosaic they will keep. As well as learning that working together as a team, they can create beautiful class projects.
Mosaic Mania's class projects will culminate in a display and silent auction
at the community picnic scheduled for May 19thth
from 4:00-7:00 p.m. at the DL City Park and Pavilion. 50% of the money raised from the silent auctions will go back to support children's programming at the DLCCC,and 50% of the money raised will go back to participating schools. The DLCCC operates an After School Program in which children participate in hands-on arts and fitness activities, the Holmes Theatre annually presents 4-6 children’s shows attended by thousands of area school children at a reduced rate, as well as provide
funding for future outreach projects with area schools.
