planning ahead

I'm teaching an intro 3d mosaic course at John C Campbell Folk School November 1-7 week.  It will be very basic polystyrene carving, and mosaic application to create INDOOR "geode" sculptures.  Plan ahead now for a beautiful Fall week in the WNC mountains... you know you want to...

Let There Be Light

10'x3' mosaic mural residency with 425 students K-8th grade over the course of one week (plus grout day).

K/1st grade did pattern border with a partner
2nd grade did yellow sun in small groups
3rd grade worked on pink bubbles in groups
4th grade worked on large rainbow mix bubbles in groups
5th grade worked on small white bubbles in pairs
6th grade worked on gradient blues background
7/8th learned how to cut with nippers, pieced lettering and white letter banner

Thank you to Ms. Oglesby and faculty of St. Mary Magdalene Catholic School in Apex, NC for a great project!

salamanders revisited

Last Fall I was pleased to work with the 5th grade class at Salem Elementary School on a mosaic mini-mural for their legacy gift to the school.  I was really happy to be asked back to work with this 2014-15 5th grade class for an even more prominent mosaic... right at the front entry of the school!
