School Mosaics & Community Mosaics

with Joshua Winer, Artist and Teacher

Here you can see all of the steps that we follow to create a mosaic mural. Each of these steps is hands-on and engaging.

This sequence starts with Design, where we brainstorm and conceptualize and create drawings.

There are many wonderful Materials to choose from, and taking a look at the options helps to visualize all the possibilities.

Making the Mosaic is the time when, literally, everything comes together. We work as a team, building the mosaic piece by piece, day by day, from start to finish.

Once the mosaic work is done, we work together on Grouting, when we fill in the joints between all the tiles.

The final step is Installation, when we hang the mosaic in its permanent home.

As you read through these sections, you will be introduced to an interesting range of ideas and themes and people and places too. I hope you will get a feeling for what it might be like to work on a project with your own community!
