Our Greening Green Street Mosaic Project is an art, math, and science community initiative at the Green Street Arts Center in Middletown, CT. The Project includes activities to teach our AfterSchool students about gardening, plant identification, weather, and mosaic making. Students in grades 1-8 will learn about mosaic techniques and create pebble mosaics to become part of a permanent installation in the Green Street garden. Every day they come to Green Street, the students will feel ownership of the living learning space and have the opportunity to tell other visitors about what they accomplished. 

Community members also have the opportunity to make their own mosaics by participating in one of our evening or weekend workshops. All workshops taught by nationally-known mosaicist and HOT Schools teaching artist Debora Aldo and are located at the Green Street Arts Center of Wesleyan University; 51 Green Street, Middletown, CT 06457. 
If you would rather leave the mosaic making to the AfterSchool students but would still like to support the project, you can sponsor a student's mosaic starting at just $10.
