Could you turn something broken into something beautiful? Mosaic is an art form that dates back to ancient times. In this class we will learn the fun and safe way to make a mosaic piece with tile, stone, stained glass, and many other up-cycled materials such as buttons, seashells and even keyboard keys! Students will plan and sketch out a piece of artwork, arrange patterns, use positive and negative space, create an image with pieces, and learn how to execute a piece of art that requires a timed process. Students have the option to bring an object from their home to turn into a mosaic piece, or bring in a glass/dish to break into pieces to use in their masterpiece.
