Roman Mosaics

Project: After learning about Roman art and culture and looking at many examples of Roman mosaics, students designed their own. They cut colored paper into small squares, or tesserae, and glued the tesserae down to form pictures of fish, monsters, other animals, people, and any other subject that the ancient Romans might have depicted.

Homework due Tuesday, 1/19: complete mosaics. Bring in contact sheets and any art supplies not checked on Friday.

Have a great long weekend!
