Hello Parents and Friends!!
I'm very excited to begin our school-wide fall art project! This year's project will be a very large mural called a Mosaic.
mosaic |mōˈzā-ik| noun
1 a picture or pattern produced by arranging together small colored pieces of hard material, such as stone, tile, or glass:| the walls and vaults are decorated by marble and mosaic|[ as modifier ] : a mosaic floor.
Mosaics are an ancient form of art which orginated in middle east, Persia. The Persian artists created mosaics to depict historical events and were celebrated for months upon completion. The process is still widely used today from various 21st century artists. You might recognize a very popular mosaic shown below; it's at Walt Disney World!! Our mosaic projects always proves to be an amazing experience for my art students, year after year.
I'm asking for the following donations to make sure our fall school-wide project is a success:
1. As many bags of dry beans as possible! I will accept any kind, except the assortments in one bag (we'll have to sort every one to use the bag)
The Dollar Store has several kinds for $1.00 per bag.
2. Foam core board (any color)
Again, the Dollar Store has several colors for $1.00 each.
Thank you in advance for any/all donations and/or for just stopping by; come back anytime!!
