Lynn Adams – Visual Artist

Lynn Adams - Visual ArtistThrough her “Once Upon a Tile” project, Lynn Adams is teaching children at the Boys & Girls Club of San Dieguito the timeless art of tile painting. Throughout the year, kids are working individually on their own tiles, where they can express themselves with newly acquired artistic skills. On a larger scale, the children are collaborating with each other, working on a plan to combine their tiles into a cohesive tile mural that will enliven the exterior of the club. The project provides inherent avenues for personal artistic growth, and it also teaches the children to develop and carry out a plan as a team.

Lynn’s love of children and passion for tile painting inspired her to develop the “Once Upon a Tile” project. Prior to working with the Artist Outreach Project, she taught art classes in elementary school classrooms and created painted tile murals with her students. In total she has directed and installed more than 50 mural art projects with as many as 1,000 children involved with a single project. With the children she is leading at the Boys & Girls Club, it is Lynn’s hope that “They will begin to recognize the magic of being in synergy with other creative beings and know the joy of celebration as they progress towards completion and installation of their collective tile mural.”
