Mosaic project fosters art skills, community spirit
In an article in the Observer-Reporter, Day said the mural was focused on teaching students foundational art concepts to prepare them for further studies in middle and high school. They not only learned artistic skills in a hands-on way, but were also instructed in the history of mosaics and some of the more famous examples and artists of the art form. Students began by creating a paper mosaic before learning how to safely cut, glue and space the glass pieces. Not only was the project a success, but the students looked forward to working on it, Day said.
Day also oversaw a mosaic mural project at Trinity South, and students at Trinity North and Trinity West completed mini-mosaics.
