MOSAIC WORKSHOPS IN SCHOOL


I provide taught mosaic school sessions in both primary and secondary schools across Yorkshire & the UK.

EXAMPLES OF SCHOOL MOSAIC WORKSHOPS:

Every mosaic session begins with an introduction to mosaics, materials, methods & examples of my/other mosaic artists work.

OPTION 1: SCHOOL MOSAIC:

Each child in the school contributes to a joint mosaic (e.g. 1 m sq) over the course of a week, one class per morning or afternoon. Sue will work with groups of 6 children at a time on the mosaic (Mon-Thurs, leaving Fri clear for grouting) while the remainder of the class undertake a range of additional mosaic themed activities such as word-search, history comprehension, quiz & drawing exercise.

OPTION 2: MOSAIC PAVING SLABS:

Each child in the school/class contributes to jointly create mosaic paving slabs one class per morning or afternoon. Sue will work with groups of 6 children at a time on the mosaic while the remainder of the class undertake a range of additional mosaic themed activities such as word-search, history comprehension, quiz & drawing exercise.

OPTION 3: MOSAIC A MIRROR:

Children will each mosaic their own mirror (26 cm sq) to take home during a morning or afternoon. Mosaic mirrors make great gifts which could be sold for school fundraising. Additional classroom activities such as mosaic word-search, comprehension, quiz & drawing exercise included.

OPTION 4: MOSAIC A COASTER:

Children will each mosaic their own coaster (10 cm sq) to take home during a 1.5 hour session. Additional classroom activities such as mosaic word-search, comprehension, quiz & drawing exercise included.

OPTION 5: INTRODUCTION TO MOSAICS:

Children will explore how to make a mosaic using glass tiles to create temporary designs (without the cost incurred of making a permanent mosaic), which can be photographed (for display purposes) during a morning or afternoon. Additional classroom activities such as mosaic word-search, comprehension, quiz & drawing exercise included.

I have provided mosaic workshops in schools since 2008 in a wide variety of schools including rural, urban, special needs, public, private, small and large.
Having successfully applied for Arts Council funding, I worked for two years with MIND (Hull & East Yorkshire) to create mosaics with disadvantaged children, promoting positive mental health through expressing creativity, aged 5-13 years old across schools, with children's charities, children's centres, youth centres and out of school activities.
