Public Mosaics

Students transform public objects (i.e., trashcans, columns, and planters) into works of mosaic art while performing community service. Students learn about recycling and reuse as they use rescued, found and donated materials to make public art. Students design increasingly complex patterns before gluing them on mesh. The teaching artist grouts them to the final surface, usually a trash can.
