This mosaic mural panel was pieced with the help of young artists participating in the Vallejo Community Arts Foundation (VCAF) Youth Summer Art Camp.
The Art Camp included youth aged 7 years to 14 years. All participated in piecing the Phoenix Wildfire glass mosaic panel.
The art camp kids used hand tools to cut glass and the older (11-14 year olds) kids even got to use a glass grinder and ring saw wet saw. All kids helped piece the mosaic.
The kids worked in groups on different parts of the mosaic and rotated to different areas to gain more experience. Here Sophia is demonstrating how to cut glass with glass nippers.
