Nimbus Arts, the St. Helena-based nonprofit art organization serving the Napa Valley, is seeking a final round of volunteers to complete the mosaic elements of its current “Hundreds of Hands” art installation.
The large-scale mosaic is soon to be installed at the corner of Oak Avenue and Adams Street, transforming corner of St. Helena Elementary School into a “Creativity Corner.”
Supported through a nonprofit grant awarded by the City of St. Helena, a matching gift from the Rudd Foundation, collaboration with the St. Helena Unified School District, public support, and Nimbus Arts’ commitment to community arts, the Creativity Corner is Nimbus Arts’ fourth Hundreds of Hands community art project.
The Creativity Corner will serve as a year-round space to engage in art activities, community play space and area for classroom activity. A meandering dragon mosaic will celebrate St. Helena Elementary School’s mascot. Installation will begin soon with unveiling and dedication of the Creativity Corner scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 21.
Residents of all ages, as well as visitors to the Napa Valley, are invited to join Nimbus Arts’ staff and artists in contributing to the final mosaic design.
The free workshops to complete the dragon mosaic will be held at the Nimbus Arts studio at 649 Main St., St. Helena, on Thursday, Sept. 7 from 6-8:30 p.m. and Thursday, Sept. 14, 6-8:30 p.m.).
Artists of all ages and abilities are welcome. Children under 10 are encouraged to attend but must be accompanied by an adult. Attendees can make an evening of it by bringing a potluck dish, or wine to share.
