Mosaic is the art of decoration with small pieces of colored glass, stone or other material. The small tiles , fragments of pottery (known as tesserae, diminutive tessellae) or colored glass are adhered to a surface to create a pattern, design or picture.

1st grade artists created mosaics using pre-print patterns and paper tiles. The tiles were both printed in both solid colors and mineral patterns.

Students were encouraged to create patterns and explore design.
