Terra Linda receives art grant

The Terra Linda Elementary Parent Teacher Committee (PTC) in Cedar Mill has been awarded a $5,109 Project Grant from Portland-Metro’s Regional Arts and Culture Council (RACC) for 2009. The funds will be used to help pay for a garden-themed mural residency with professional artist Lynn Takata of Portland. The 8-week residency from January to March allows all 450+ students at Terra Linda School to receive instruction in visual art techniques, process, and public art appreciation. The residency will culminate in the creation of a 10’ x 12’ mosaic and clay mural in the school’s main entrance.

“We are thrilled to receive the RACC Project Grant,” says parent and PTC board member Lisa Nelson. “We hope this project not only enhances our students’ instruction in the arts, but also our sense of school community.”

The school’s students, staff and many parent volunteers will be working together to design, build and install the mural. The total project costs are estimated at $13,000 with additional funding supplied by parent and community donors and local corporations, Far West Fibers and Tektronix.
