News from Cotton’s Point: Mosaics and Holiday Arts

Three wonderful organizations collaborated to bring joy to the Cotton’s Point Senior Apartments in San Clemente, CA: EngAGE, The Passionate HeArts mosaic artists, and the San Clemente High School Visits of Love Club. (Read more about these projects and see more photos in this week’s issue of the San Clemente Times newspaper!)

EngAGE organized several months of mosaic art classes with two San Clemente mosaic artists, Julie Dickey and Sandy Stevens. Julie and Sandy donated their time and creativity to help the residents make a beautiful mosaic mural which was entered in the EngAGE Senior Olympics art competition. The team won the gold medal! The mural is now mounted in the Cotton’s Point apartment building entryway.

Our project didn’t stop at the mural. Julie and Sandy came back to Cotton’s Point on November 28th to share their holiday cheer by helping residents make their own mosaic Christmas trees to take home. The San Clemente High School Visits of Love Club interacted with the residents and facilitated the project. The evening was filled with wonderful smiles and holiday happiness. Thank you to everyone who participated!
