The featured project will be a mosaic that uses many different shapes of glass including circles, squares, diamonds, waves, and slides to create a chaotic, modern design.

Each project will expand a student's understanding of color, pattern, rhythm, texture, and spacing as they complete rich, dimensioned compositions.

For each project, students will be able to choose from a variety of substrates- rectangular, square, shaped, or circular backboards, or special forms such as mirrors, pots, or small boxes.

Students who are new to mosaics will complete a quick checkerboard project (complete with wooden checkers) to teach pattern, layout, and lines before starting their specialized projects. The number of projects completed each quarter depends on the student s work speed and attendance in class.
