Mosaics


begining our work with color

Second graders at Wood End and Birch Meadow studied Mosaics. A mosaic is an image made of of small squares of color traditionally made of stone, tile, or glass. We looked at different mosaics from Ancient Rome and discussed that Mosaics were used to decorate important buildings and homes.  Often times, Mosaics were large scale and used as wall and floor decoration.  We searched through magazines for colors from the color wheel.  We collected six of each color and saved them.  We then drew pictures of ocean animals on black construction paper and outlined them with white crayon.  We used our magazine pieces and cut them up into small squares of color and glued them to our drawing.
