Waconia Southview Elementary school's guiding principle is what they term "The Caring Heart". This collaborative Artist In Residence project illustrates the idea of sharing your caring heart. I worked with students K-5 and staff to paint 600 tiles. This is the biggest A.I.R program I have done. Each tile is unique to who painted it. I drew the design on the tiles and limited the paint colors for each color area on the design. The students and staff did the rest. After the tiles were painted I mounted them to the wall and continued the design onto the rest of the wall. This is the first time I painted a mural in conjunction with the tiles. I love how we transformed a boring hallway Ito a burst of color.

This video shows the process to create this mural:
