We made our own colorful mosaics in Art Enrichment!

In Afternoon Art Enrichment we made our own animal and bird mosaics.  We talked about how mosaic is a decorative art involving colored small pieces of glass, stone, minerals, and fragments of pottery or other materials.  It is an ancient art with roots in Rome, Greece and Mesopotamia.  For our mosaics we used various dried beans including lentils, green split peas, red lentils and red kidney beans. We also used rice. It was a fun activity and we all made our own colorful beautiful mosaics.
