The Community Collage project was one of many low budget community art projects that I created for the City of Port Moody. My idea was to create a collage that anyone could participate in, but that would have a unifying image specific to Port Moody. As preparation I created an illustration of the shoreline trail boardwalk, an iconic scene for residents as the template.
During the event community members of all ages were given scraps of construction paper to draw on (encouraged to draw or write their favourite things about Port Moody), and when they were done I glued their scraps directly onto the template, and redrew the original template lines overtop.
It was a very easy process and it was great to see it progress during the course of the day.
