Tallulah Project: Bridging Our Communities With Clay

The Tallulah Project is a mosaic tile mural that creates a passageway depicting landscapes of Arizona and how they are transformed by water. The word Tallulah is Native American meaning running water. Our beautiful mural is reflective of all those who teach and learn at our preschool and Sunday school classes. All of the clay tiles have been handmade by children and adults of our PPC community. You, too, can be a part of this wonderful project.

It is fun and easy to make clay tiles. This year Pinnacle families will make water and leaf tiles to continue the arroyo that will flow past the Atelier. Leaf tiles are only $10 each. To order your family water tiles or to sign up for one of our workshops, please contact the preschool office at 480.585.9448 ext. 2. 

The Arizona Commission on the Arts is committed to making the arts fundamental to education, particularly in programs that serve Pre-K through 12th-grade students. The Arizona Commission on the Arts has awarded an Arts & Education Grant to Pinnacle Presbyterian Preschool.

This matching funds grant has allowed the preschool to hire the talents of Arizona artists to assist in providing clay workshops and teaching the techniques of rendering large scale wall murals.

2017-18 Clay Family Workshops in the school Atelier are scheduled for:

  • Saturday, September 16, 2017, 10 AM - Noon
  • Saturday, April 28, 2018, 10 AM - Noon

At our clay workshops we create tiles, glaze (paint) the tiles, apply the tiles to the wall and grout. We encourage families in our community to join us.

Leave your mark on our wall!
