Summary:
Trace the history and influence of mosaics and excite students about creating their own projects. This program begins by exploring the past, when pebbles were used to create pictures and designs on the floor, and then traces the use of tesserae (small squares of stone, tile, or glass) in artistic expression. Students will see how mosaics have enhanced architecture from ancient Rome and Byzantine to modern times. After presenting exciting examples and history, the program shows viewers how to create their own mosaics using paper, cardboard, plastics, seeds, and tesserae. Students will appreciate the step-by-step demonstrations and "tricks of the trade" advice.
