From Harford County Public Schools:
Ninety advanced art students at Fallston High School are currently working under the tutelage of a professional mosaic artist to create a masterpiece that will span the second floor of the school building.
Mrs. Andrea Sauer, art educator at Fallston High School, was awarded a grant through the Maryland State Arts Council that provided the funding for Ms. Sue Stockman, a professional mosaic artist, to work with the school’s Advanced Drawing, Advanced Painting, and 3-D Design students.
During this special project, students will discuss in depth with the resident artist the concept of personal growth, and the art classes will work together to develop a final design. Once the final design is determined, students will learn how to create a model of the drawing and grid it out.
Students will then draw the design to scale, learn how to use power tools to cut recycled glass and tile, and finally grout the pieces on to wedi board.
The mosaic residency will be three weeks long in total, every other day, and will culminate in late November.
