When I started with this Art Club project I thought we would never finish but working on it any chance we could, even Saturdays, made it materialize very quickly. We only had to change a few areas. The mirrors are the most innovative sections. I like how it looks on camera. -- Barbara

I enjoyed gluing the tiles to the design. I had no idea it would look like this. I also know that we will grout it and it will change its tone or shade. -- Erline

Seeing the details or the small parts of a mosaic is very important. We had a lot of fine matching or skilled work to do and we almost finished the job. The next step is outlining some parts and the grouting around the tile. It will be interesting to see what the next club will do, Art Club 14-15. I can' wait. -- Brenelle

An ancient form of decorative art using small pieces of glass, , tile or pebbles pressed in grout or other grounds. We used plywood and honored a former student's painting.
written by ARTCLUB334
I worked on this beause I am good at simple math. I use the grid drawing method and an art projector. Then we used a paint brush and black acrylic paint after after leaning the wall with a T.S.P. Cleaner (trisodium phosphate), to ensure a clean surface as a good foundation. Next was an acrylic primer from a home improvement store. This was to insure the paint would stick for many years.. My teacher said we will do one mural on pre-primed unstreatched canvas. Brennelle

Mixing the colors this is an eye opening experience. I am so used too mixing color if I don't like that it was difficult to leave it. I had to wait until the board was covered to see where I was going. It was an eye operner. I think I like the technique of mosaic making.
