East Shore’s Community Mural Project is our main community action project for 2022.  This project will help us explore collaboration and creativity, inclusion and agency across generations.  This year we will complete the first phase: a mural in the hallway outside the preschool room and bathrooms in the Education Building.  We’d like to express our gratitude to the Aesthetics Team and to East Shore’s wonderful staff who have been enthusiastically supporting the community mural.

This first phase of the mural will be painted during the Art In Community summer camp, which will run from 9am to 3pm on June 27 through July 1st.  The camp is for 5-12 year olds, with teen counselors and adult leaders.  The first-phase of the mural depicts our Pacific Northwest natural heritage, including our region’s land, mountain and water-scapes, and rich plant and animal diversity.  The campers will be encouraged to depict their favorite PNW plants and animals.

How to Participate

We are eagerly seeking volunteers to be “muralists.” Volunteer positions are available June 20-July 1 in 3-hour shifts. Muralists will help with setup, painting and clean up.  You can work with young people to translate their creative ideas onto the mural wall. All you need to bring is some work clothes you won’t mind getting splattered with paint. You can use this link to sign up for as many shifts as you can help us.  Please contact the mural project manager, Doug Strombom ([email protected], 4259858587) if you have any questions about the mural or volunteering.  Please volunteer… it will be fun!

More Information

Our own Wenda Collins has designed the overall mural, choosing very calming and beautiful colors and forms.  We are so lucky to have such talented artists as Wenda in our community.  Wenda has this to say about the project:

Long ago I heard the phrase “when you touch a flower you are touching star dust”
I tried to keep this phase in mind as I designed the mural
I think we live in a place where the sea, mountains, moist air and sun, the flora and fauna affects our life and our hearts.

We have several parking lots. Our upper lot, off SE 32nd Street, is closest to our Sanctuary, it has handicap and stroller parking. There is a roundabout for drop-offs. Our lower, main parking lot is also off SE 32nd Street. There are stairs that will lead you up to the Sanctuary. If that lot is full, there is also street parking on 32nd Street.
