2024 Summer Program

Mosaic is the art of creating images with pieces of glass, stone, or pottery. Explore this exciting art form and learn the same techniques used by ancient civilizations, from the Romans and Greeks to the early Byzantine Empire. You will learn the basics of breaking and cutting materials with special mosaic and glass cutting tools, as well as designing, and arranging the tiles to create works of art. During the week, you will have the option of choosing from among the following projects:

~ Mosaic mirror using patterns and abstract designs.
~ Pet Portrait to capture the image of a special animal.
~ House number or name to hang outside your front door.
~ Your very own wall panel or small tabletop mosaic.
