Be Inspired

Over the past few years Mosaic art has  become a special interest area of mine. I had the opportunity to take part in Mosaic Workshops run by Nola Diamantopoulos of Sydney and Deborah Halpern of Melbourne. Nola’s horse, Enoran, was one which was simple in its design and coloring but which has emerged as a favourite of mine. Deborah was  photographed while polishing her work after she demonstated the grouting process. Australia Artist  Jane Byrne visited our Grade 6 students in 2008 and  inspired our work on the Year of the Rat mosaic. Jane showed us how extra interest can be added to a piece by adding cup handles and pieces of  old mugs, plates etc which have different textures. I have a lot to learn about mosaic art but I look forward to continuing to be inspired.

  1. Thanks SO much for your Blog comment Nancie. I really appreciate it because I am an avid Blog reader but not such a prolific blog commenter.My aim is to make more comments and encourage my students to do so this year.
    Congratulations upon the outstanding student work featured on your Blog. It’s one to keep an eye on for sure.
    Thanks once again,
