Learn to create mosaics by arranging colored pieces of stone, tile, mirror, and glass in a wooden frame. This class is perfect for the student who enjoys working with color, pattern, found objects, and three-dimensional creations.
Students entering grades 1 through 5 in fall 2019 are invited to register for this class.
Students provide their own peanut free lunch for full day and snacks for half-day programs. Families and friends are welcome to come 15 minutes before the end of class on Friday to enjoy an exhibition of student work in the Education Gallery and classrooms.
Need a full day program? Students may combine the morning Jewelry Making class with the afternoon Mosaics class, and Lunch Option 5.
