5th Graders dedicate mosaic mural at John Stockton

Mural_02large Mural_03What should have been a year-long project at the John Stockton Elementary School was fast-tracked, according to art teacher Pam Patterson, and completed in less than five months. “I’d been admiring Kate Garcia’s mosaic at the West Riverside Elementary School for some time,” said Patterson. “And when parent Angie Morales stepped up to assist with the project, I knew we could do it.”
While the clay, tile and mirror mosaic was the art project for the 5th grade, all students at the Ortega Forest magnet school were able to participate. “The fifth graders created the houses and the personalized pavers,” mentioned Morales, whose son David is in that class. “Other grades created the people, the animals, the fish.” There’s even a section of the Ortega River Bridge on the left portion of the mural.
Other parents also got involved, helping procure a local construction company to install the 24 foot wide x 3 to 4-1/2 foot high mural, while parent (and former student) Charlie Sandusky framed it in time for the Jun. 5 ribbon cutting.
