Flower Mosaic


Mosaic art is a hit this year at the St. Edmund Learning Center Summer Enrichment program. Bright mosaics, many of them flowers, decorate the art room walls.
The children not only enjoyed designing their masterpieces but had fun tearing the paper into tiny pieces. After drawing a design, they glued the paper onto canvas, then used watercolor to paint over it.

What a neat idea and I love the end results.

PS: The word verification is "huggsmi". I think your blog just gave me a hug!

Now this is the kind of activity that kids (and most adults) love. Great way to play in summer. Wonderful image...talented, too.

Any activity that takes our kids away from the TV and all the other electronic accouterments is OK with me...this looks to be an especially creative activity...

Nicely done!

Sounds like fun. I should give that a try.

This is beautiful. I am so glad that the children are getting to make colorful art and escape the heat at the same time. I can just imagine them, totally absorbed in the design process, working so diligently to bring their visions to life. What a great project to be involved it!
