The Creation of mosaic art in Jacmel, Haiti

Here is a picture of a Mosaic wall in the city of Jacmel. Mosaic Art Teaching Haitian Youth Practical Skills

Haiti's 2010 earthquake destroyed Jacmel's buildings. Mosaic artist Laurel True partnered with Art Creation Foundation for Children (ACFFC) to design a memorial mural for Jacmel that covered a 350-foot wall, teaching youths in the process in an apprenticeship program.

Through the art of mosaic-making they have acquired life skills and confidence, and are working on mosaic projects in Haiti, Florida, and California. Proceeds received go into bank accounts for each fledgling mosaic artist.
