Free tile painting sessions are being held June 27 – 29 and the public is invited to participate in the creation of a Mural Mosaic legacy project for Canada 150, to be unveiled on Canada Day.
The Charlottetown Mural Mosaic will be created from hundreds of individually painted tiles, which will be assembled to create a unified mosaic that represents the community. The City is inviting islanders and visitors to participate in free one-hour tile painting sessions to incorporate their design and creativity into the project. The one-hour sessions will be held in the Upton Room at the West Royalty Community Centre (1 Kirkdale Road) with morning, afternoon and evening sessions taking place June 27 to 29. Pre-registration is required and each session has a capacity of 30 individuals. All the required supplies for painting the tiles will be provided and there is no cost to participate. Participants are encouraged to wear appropriate attire for painting. To register as an individual, family or group contact Charlotte Nicholson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 902-629-4138.
The tiles will then be assembled into a large mosaic and the full mural will be unveiled on Canada Day in Victoria Park. The Canada 150 Mural Mosaic will permanently reside in Charlottetown, where it was created, as a reminder of the 150th anniversary and the pride of the community and the nation.
