Cutting the tiles for the mosaics.

Summer Camp at the National Museum began on July 27th and ended on August 2nd 2013. On the first day all fourteen registered children drew and colored pictures of our “Favorite Island Thing.”  Then on Monday to Wednesday we made our mosaics from these pictures.

It was very enjoyable to cut, fit and stick the pieces of tiles together to make the mosaics. We were amazed at how beautiful the pictures looked when they were completed. We are indeed proud of our efforts!! We say a great thank you to our GREAT teacher, Ms. Lisa Wandres, who gave so generously of her time and donated materials that made it possible!!

Finished mosaics show just how artistic the kids are!

A good day’s work and lots of fun!

Our reward for all our hard work was a trip to Gibbs Cay, sponsored by Oasis Divers. We enjoyed our hike, and swim with the sting rays at Gibbs Cay. Thank you Oasis Divers, especially Captain Been, and Brent Astwood for making our trip and Summer a memorable one!!
