Progress , So Far


Here are some of the finished "finger" labyrinths. We also worked on tile , practicing the labyrinth drawing using acrylic paint. We continue to paint the "stepping stone" tiles, and start production the the border tile. We will need 96 six inch black tile to frame the labyrinth! Next week we will push to finish painting all the stepping stones. We are planning a "paint-a-thon".

Model for labyrinth sold at auction


A model variation of the labyrinth was auctioned off at the annual South Jersey Land and Water Trust art auction and dinner. The highest bidder was Mrs Ann O. Poole, who is president of the NJ Environmental Lobby. The proceeds from the sale benefit the Trust, and I am really happy that our labyrinth model will have a home in the NJ Pinelands!

March 11 and 12


We continue to underglaze paint the stepping stone tiles. We also work on making the "finger" labyrinths.Students learn how to apply the clear glaze to their tiles.
