Beginning in October, the PAL team sent out ceramic tiles and paint to a few of our partner organizations. With their help, and the creativity of their kiddos, we were able to collect 140 amazingly decorated tiles! We received a variety of styles, some handprints, a few quotes, and the rest beautifully painted.
With these tiles, we had the opportunity to continue the mural project The Boys & Girls Club began in 2014, taking up a large portion of a wall in downtown Vancouver. We added a nice border, then filled it in, and sealed all the tiles, including the ones already there.
With the help of Marcy from Rocksolid Teen Center, and Officer Chavers from Vancouver Police Department, we were able to finish the mural, almost! We still have a handful of tiles to add as soon as we have a day nice enough to do so.
Big thank you to the Boys & Girls Club and Rocksolid Teens for painting the tiles for us!
Please go check out the mural in downtown Vancouver, on the wall at the Chevron off C St. and Mill Plain.
