Mosaic oak tree is a ‘warm way to welcome everybody’
Alex Dmitroff, 14, mixes a batch of grout for a mosaic mural that he and about 60 other Art Club students at Cross Middle School planned and constructed over the past two years. The mosaic is of an oak tree and stands about 20 feet tall.
Savannah Rodriguez, 13, hands a mesh segment covered with mosaic tiles to Cross Middle School art teacher Danielle Mulleneaux last week during the final stages of construction on their mosaic tree.
Cross Middle School art teacher Danielle Mulleneaux helps her Art Club members grout the handmade mosaic tile mural at the school.
Weaving throughout the leaves of the giant mosaic oak tree is the quote, “The creation of a thousand forests rests in one acorn.”
