Looking for a something creative and fun to do in East Falls? Want to add a little sparkle to your life and your neighborhood? Tile Artist and Instructor, Trish Metzner, will lead a community-engaged mosaic art project aimed at beautifying the East Falls Ferry Avenue gateway corridor. The class offers residents the opportunity to learn mosaic, be hands-on and involved in the local creative arts scene, and contribute something meaningful to the places we spend our time together as neighbors and family.

Come create your own mosaic fish(or sponsor someone else to) in this six week mosaic art workshop where Trish will teach the basic mosaic process from start to finish in a relaxed evening of fun. In Spring 2019, your fish will be installed in a school of community made mosaic fish surrounding the main sculpture, a 4ft tall Catfish named Waffles. The mural showcase the originality of individuals living in our area and the symbiotic relationship that residents have with each other and their surroundings especially the Schuylkill River habitat. this work of art draws on creativity past and present.    A hand made ceramic plaque will be installed with art to recognize the donors who contributed to the project through the “Adopt a Fish” fund.
