2015 Summer Program

Mosaic is the art of creating pictures with small pieces of glass, stone, materials. It is a technique used by almost all ancient civilizations from the Romans and Greeks to the early Byzantine Empire. Explore this ancient art form and learn the same techniques practiced thousands of years ago.

Using glass, ceramic tile, pottery, stone, and found objects, you will create an individual wall panel or small tabletop mosaic of your own design. Then, after having mastered the techniques, work together with the rest of the group to create a life-size mosaic hopscotch court. You will help design, and then create the court using ceramic tile and the indirect method – creating the design in the reverse – and then installing the finished mosaic hopscotch on the grounds of the museum.
