Mosaic is an ancient technique that originates from as early as 4000 B.C.  In some cultures it was necessary for constructing pleasing living spaces.  Today it is most often used for decoration.  Mosaic is unique because it allows for contrast in light, depth, texture, color, and pattern.  In this project, middle school students will learn to cut tile, apply adhesive, and grout.  They will design and create several projects that explore techniques and styles, both modern and ancient.  This project will meet on campus Monday through Friday.
