Mosaic Lights up Cafe

April 25, 2014

Artist Michelle Greenwood-Brown was engaged by Teignmouth Community School to work with Year 10 students to create a mosaic Café 6 – to decorate the front of the  Sixth Form café.

Using a design fashioned by Sixth form student Tom C Evans, the Year 10s worked really effectively to translate the design into mosaic form.  Tom is a former THF Bursary holder, having benefited from the charity’s support to attend the National Youth Theatre in 2012 – an event he wrote about afterwards as “the best 10 days of my life!”. Tom is now planning to study drama at university or drama school.

Michelle writes of the legacy of the mosaic project, where she worked alongside art teacher Ellie:
“I really enjoyed the whole process and feel I have left a legacy behind as Ellie has embraced mosaic and plans to introduce the technique to year 9 and invest in a collection of tools & materials.”
