St Johns Community Spray Park Mural
be a part of HISTORY….and MYSTERY
There is an exciting mural designed for the blue part of the pool house building at the Spray Park…but the design is a SECRET!! To solve the mystery, we need YOU to paint a portion of the Spray Park Mural.
Help make our Spray Park beautiful by painting your 5â€ťx5â€ť piece at one of the listed painting events. For just $5 per tile, you can be a part of St Johns history!
Bring the whole family and have each member paint a tile. Â Imagine ten years from now, revisiting the Spray Park with your family and searching for your tile while reminiscing about the experience. Â Imagine 20 years from now, when your kids bring their kids to play and show themÂ what they painted.
All supplies, instruction and memories are included! No painting experience is necessary.
Everyone is encouraged to paint in their own unique style. Â When put together, our tiles will create a very cool mosaic style mural.
A similar mural was created by the community in Traverse City in 2010.
They have graciously served as consultants for our project.
Â How does it work?
When you arrive at one of the paint events, you will sign in at the welcome table. Â Here you can purchase as many tiles as you would like for $5 a piece.
You will be providedÂ your aluminum tile(s), a template for each tile, an apron, paint and paint brushes.
You will then copy the design of your template onto the aluminum tile. Volunteers will be there to assist you if needed!
We will keep your tile to be installed on the wall at the end of the summer. Â You can keep your template as a keepsake. Â It will hold your tile number so you will be able to locate your tile after installation.
In September, you will be invited to come for the official unveiling of our newly installed mural!
