School Residency Mosaic Making Program

With this program the students at your school will have the opportunity to create a lasting work of art to enrich the school environment. The process starts with students drawing designs on paper to find the theme of the mosaic. Some of the drawings may later be enlarged to use as templates for tile making. Next is the fun part when we come to the classroom with all the clay for tile making. During this session students will make many tiles and paint them with underglaze. The tiles will be taken to the studio for glazing and firing. The final step is to install the mosaic and grout the design.

Mosaic making is a way to include all the students working as a team bringing their ideas together to create something wonderful and exciting.
