For over a decade, Robin Bott has focused on creating and teaching others the art of producing mosaic murals.

Second graders helped Robin design and tile a total of twenty-eight 3’ x 5’ glass tile mosaic murals in Palos Verdes schools. Robin also has designed projects for the Art At Your Fingertips program, which reaches over 7,000 Peninsula students.
