Students create mosaics for downtown mural
Thanks in part to an $1,800 grant awarded to art teacher Lara Fassler from the Michelle MacNaught Foundation, students were able to participate in creating mosaics with clay fish tiles.
 
A total of 11 mosaics will be installed as part of a mural on the side of the Circle Antiques building on Delaware Street. 
 
Emily Jablon, a mosaic artist from Binghamton, came to Walton to work with students, bringing a plethora of glass tiles to choose from. She then showed the students how to cut glass and apply the glass to the mosaics, along with the clay fish tiles the students had made in class. 
 
The fish created in Fassler’s class were based on fish found in the Delaware River.
