Clarington art lovers will get a chance next week to be part of a community art mural made up of 700 individually painted tiles, with the finished product to be displayed outside Town Hall in Bowmanville.

Communities across Canada will participate by creating murals of trees to symbolize connection, under the guidance of Mosaic Murals, a group that has been creating mosaic mural art projects in Canada and around the world since 1997.

The murals are part of a global art project by Mosaic Murals that aims to “Re-Connect the World” with “one painted tile, one tree, one community, one country at a time.”

“The purpose of this project is to (re)connect our communities, families and long-distance loved ones through the joy and inspiration that bringing mosaic tiles together into one united piece of art.” Mural Mosaic said on their website.

Clarington’s mural will be an apple tree. Each square of the mural represents a tile that a different resident will paint.

To participate, residents are encouraged to register (and to get tips and guidelines) at www.muralmosaic.com/Clarington.

You will receive a tile kit that includes one mosaic tile, paint, and supplies, instructions, as well as ingredients to make a pancake breakfast.

One tile per resident and the tile kits will be handed out on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Pick-up dates and locations will be Tuesday, August 17, from 3 to 6 p.m. at Diane Hamre Recreation Complex; Wednesday, August 18, from 3 to 6 p.m. at Courtice Community Complex; and Thursday, August 19, from 3 to 6 p.m. at Clarington Public Library – Bowmanville Branch.
