‘None of us is alone in this world; each of us is a vital piece of the great mosaic of humanity as a whole’ - Pope John Paul II
Mosaic is the perfect medium to connect a whole community, especially if delivered as a whole-school art project. It allows people of all ages to contribute, with children from as young as four easily and safely adding their bit, so the project becomes inclusive throughout the school. It also allows participation to extend to the staff too and the teachers, assistants, lunchtime supervisors, governors and even the school vicar can add their piece, allowing everyone to feel involved, valued and part of the project. It is not gender specific and it does not require previous experience. Furthermore, mosaic can be made for the indoors, outdoors, walls or floors. It can represent the school's logo, Christian values or areas of the curriculum, adding a permanent colourful feature, that won’t fade over time.
My mosaic projects help pupils to learn new skills, including new art techniques, problem solving, expanding vocabulary, plus they also help bring pupils together to work as a team. They can be delivered on a one-off basis or as a series of sessions. The content can link to other areas of the curriculum, such as history and geography, plus making reference to other artists and craftspeople. Mosaic projects can be many things but above all, my mosaic projects are a whole heap of fun!
If you're still unsure whether it's right for you, then you can read a bit more about it in my blog 'Why I think Mosaic is best!'
I have worked with many primary schools throughout the UK, inspiring creativity. There are far too many to mention here, but if you'd like to see who, then check out my schools listing page.
I provide all the equipment and materials, work closely with staff to ensure smooth delivery and I ensure disruption is kept to a minimum.
Below is a handful of some of my previous school mosaic projects to give you a flavour of what I can offer.
