On Saturday, March 1, starting at 1 p.m., the Diamond Arts Club will be hosting a Celebration of Phase I Completion of the Pearl Place Wall Mural Project. Everyone in the community is invited to come and share their appreciation of the young people’s efforts and achievements.

This project, which was instigated by the children and youth of the club as a public service project for Diamond Springs, has been ongoing for almost half a year. The mural features brightly colored, life-size outlines of local kids in a variety of action poses. The 20 figures that constitute Phase I stretch the majority of the distance of the 8-foot-high, 130-foot wall on Pearl Place near Pleasant Valley Road.

The Phase I Celebration will begin with a barbecue luncheon at the Diamond Terraces Apartment’s Club House on Service Drive in Diamond Springs. Afterwards the group will walk to the Pearl Place Wall to admire the participants’ work. This Pearl Place Wall Mural Celebration is free of charge.

During Phase II of the Pearl Place Wall Project over the next number of months, Diamond Arts Club participants will continue to add more figures in action, as well as animals, flowers, grass, balls and other objects. This project has been approved and encouraged by the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors.

The Diamond Arts Club is a public service group sponsored by the Bahá’í Faith of El Dorado County. It is open to any interested children and youth from ages 6-14. Club supervisors are adult artists with many years of artistic experience. The club meets every Saturday from 1-2:30 p.m. at the Diamond Terraces Club House. In addition to learning a variety of arts including drawing, painting, crafts, jewelry and ceramics, the group also plays games, shares snacks and engages in public service activities.
